The results are in for the Pac-12 Gymnast of the Week and Pac-12 Freshman of the week. Utah’s MyKayla Skinner sealed the spot for gymnast of the week due to her top notch performance in the Penn State match and Cristal Isa took home the honors for freshman of the week.
Skinner won the vault, bars, floor and all-around, while Isa placed second on bars in her college debut.
Skinner’s 9.95 scores on bars and floor tied for No. 1 in the nation and her 9.95 on vault is tied for fourth. Her 39.700 all-around score led the Pac-12 and ranks second nationally.
Isa, a two-time Junior Olympic national champion on bars, scored a 9.925 on her specialty to tie for the third-best score in the country. She also competed on vault, scoring a 9.825.
This marks the third straight year that Skinner has received the award on opening week.
Isa is Utah’s first Pac-12 Freshman of the Week since Skinner won the award a Pac-12 record six times in 2017.
Utah earned the third-best team score in the country in its 197.175-194.450 win over the Nittany Lions. It was also the third-best opening week score in school history.
