After helping the Sooners to the highest score at a neutral meet in the nation (198.125) this season and earn their third consecutive 198-plus score, sophomore Jordan Bowers and freshman Faith Torrez were named the Big 12 Gymnast and Newcomer of the Week, respectively, the conference announced Tuesday.

Bowers was named the Big 12 Gymnast of the Week for the fifth time in her career and notched her 10th weekly league honor. Torrez earned her fourth weekly conference, the most for a single gymnast this season, and is the first gymnast to earn back-to-back weekly honors in 2023. Oklahoma’s trio of Torrez (four), Bowers (three) and sophomore Danielle Sievers (two) are the only gymnasts this season to earn multiple weekly conference accolades.  Click here to read more.
