Trio of Alabama Gymnasts Earn Regular Season All-America Honors...

on Wednesday, April 12, 2017

Crimson Tide Gymnastics:

For the second year in a row, a trio of Alabama gymnasts have earned regular-season All-America honors, the National Associate of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches/Women announced recently.

Senior Aja Sims and juniors Nickie Guerrero and Kiana Winston all earned the regular-season accolade. Guerrero earned first-team honors on the balance beam while Sims earned second-team honors on the floor exercise.

Winston is one of just three gymnasts in the nation to earn more than three All-America accolades in 2017. The Ft. Worth, Texas, native earned first-team recognition in the all-around, balance beam and floor exercise while taking second team on the uneven bars.

After earning regular season, first team All-America honors on the uneven bars as a sophomore, Winston now leads the Crimson Tide in regular season first-team honors with four in the five-year history of the award.

She is tied with Crimson Tide standouts Lauren Beers and Kim Jacob for the career record with five combined first and second-team accolades.

In all, eight Alabama gymnasts have earned 26 regular season All-America honors since the award's inception in 2013.

The NACGC/W Regular Season All-America honors are based on the final regional qualifying scores of the season with the those ranked in the top eight (including ties) on each event and in the all-around earning first team and those ranked in the next eight (including ties) being named second team.

Postseason All-America honors are determined by individual finishes in the semifinal round of the NCAA Championships. Those that finish in the top four (including ties) of a session earn first-team honors while those finishing in the next four (including ties) earn second team.

Alabama returns to the NCAA Championships for the 35th year in a row this weekend. St. Louis, Mo., will serve as the championships' host for the first time in NCAA history April 14-15. The Tide will start the championships in semifinal session II on Friday, starting at 7 p.m. CT.
