LSU's Courville named SEC Gymnast of the Week

LSU's Rheagan Courville has been named the SEC Gymnast of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday.

Courville tied the nation's best all-around total this season with a 39.750 to lead LSU to a school-record score of 197.875 at the Metroplex Challenge, and she recorded the second perfect 10.0 of her career on vault.

Courville's all-around total tied her career high that she previously set at the 2013 SEC Championship, and it marked her fifth all-around title of the year and 18th of her career.

With her 10.0 on vault at Metroplex, Courville became only the fourth LSU gymnast to score multiple 10s on vault. Her first 10.0 came at the 2013 SEC Championship.

No. 3 LSU (7-2, 3-1 SEC) is back in action Friday in a meet that pits the nation's No. 2 and 3 ranked teams for the third-straight week.

The Tigers take on second-ranked Florida at 6 p.m. CT in the O'Connell Center.
