Denver, Iowa State and Oklahoma Capture Gymnastics Honors


Denver’s Jessica Hutchinson (Gymnast), Iowa State’s Maddie Diab (Event Specialist) and Oklahoma’s Jordan Bowers (Newcomer) secured Big 12 weekly honors for the seventh week of the 2022 gymnastics season.

Hutchinson extended her all-around winning streak to three meets after capturing the all-around title with a 39.600 performance that was the top score throughout the week in the Big 12. Highlighting her meet was a career-high-tying 9.950 on floor and a season-high 9,900 on bars. The 2021 WCGA Scholastic All-American’s vault (9,850) and all-around scores were just .025 from her season highs. The sophomore recorded a 9,900 on beam to earn her second Gymnast of the Week and fourth overall Big 12 weekly award.

Diab scored a career-high 9,950 on floor and secured her first Big 12 weekly honor while helping Iowa State place first in the GymQuarters Invitational. The junior also helped the Cyclones (196,275) defeat Central Michigan (196,125), Northern Illinois (195,500) and No. 25 Western Michigan (194,050) after scoring a 9,900 on floor for her fifth score of 9,900 or higher this season.

Bowers had an exceptional night at the Metroplex Challenge with a career-high on vault (9,975) while earning the event title and leading the Sooners to a meet victory. The freshman drilled her Yurchenko 1.5, helping the Sooners to a season-high 49.550 on the event. On bars, the Lincoln, Nebraska native earned her second event title with a 9.925 and finished with a 9.9 on floor, the third-highest score of the day. It is Bowers’ third Big 12 Newcomer of the Week award this season and her fourth overall Big 12 weekly accolades.
