UCLA's Chae Campbell has been named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week, the Bruins' second consecutive award in this category.

Campbell, who hails from Carrollton, Texas, won the all-around and vault in UCLA's 196.750-195.075 victory at No. 15 Arizona. Selected the UCLA Gymnast of the Meet, she scored career-bests on three events and the all-around, earning 9.9 on vault, 9.75 on bars, 9.925 on beam and 39.425 in the all-around. She also added a 9.85 on floor. Her scores helped UCLA record season-high totals on all four events and led UCLA to a season-high team total of 196.750 and a 2-0 record to start the season. Campbell's award follows that of teammate Frida Esparza, who captured Freshman of the Week honors a week ago.

Joining Campbell as Pac-12 weekly award-winners were Utah's Maile O'Keefe (Gymnast of the Week), Abby Paulson (Specialist of the Week) and Alexia Burch (Coaches Choice).

No. 9 UCLA will compete next on Wednesday, Feb. 10 against BYU at 2pm in Pauley Pavilion presented by Wescom.
