Frazier, Ulias Honored by Pac-12

Mar 2, 2021

UCLA won two of the four weekly gymnastics honors awarded by the Pac-12, as Margzetta Frazier was named the Gymnast of the Week, and Sara Ulias received the Coaches Choice award.

Frazier, a junior from Sicklerville, N.J., earned her first Gymnast of the Week honor after a performance in which she won the all-around and uneven bars with career high scores of 39.550 and 9.950, respectively. Frazier has competed in the all-around in every meet this season and has two wins in the last three meets. Her uneven bars win was her second of the season, and her 9.950 score helped the Bruins record their best team score on any event this year, a 49.550. Frazier also earned Top 3 finishes on balance beam (T-2nd with a 9.900) and floor exercise (T-3rd, 9.850) and helped UCLA earn a season-high-tying 49.225 on vault with a stuck vault and 9.850 score.

Ulias, a freshman from Thousand Oaks, Calif., won the Coaches Choice award, which is voted upon by the conference head coaches. She scored a career-high 9.925 on uneven bars Feb. 27, helping the Bruins record a season-high 49.550, their highest bars score since Apr. 6, 2019. Ulias has earned Top 3 finishes on bars in each of the last two meets, tying for second at Utah with a 9.875 and placing third against Oregon State this past weekend.

Joining the Bruin duo as Pac-12 weekly award-winners were Utah's Jaedyn Rucker (Specialist of the Week) and Arizona State's Emily White (Freshman of the Week).

No. 10 UCLA will compete at No. 9 California on Saturday, Mar. 6.
