Carey Pulls in Pac-12 Weekly Awards

Jan 25, 2022

SAN FRANCISCO – Freshman Jade Carey earned two Pac-12 weekly awards following her record-breaking performance in the Pac-12 opener against UCLA and UC Davis, the conference announced Tuesday afternoon. The weekly honors for the Olympic gold medalist marks the first of her young Beaver career.

Carey was named both Pac-12 Gymnast and Freshman of the Week after she broke a 29-year old all-around program record after posting a 39.800 on Sunday, surpassing Chari Knight's 39.750 that was set back in 1993. In just her second meet donning the Orange & Black, Carey won her second consecutive all-around title by posting scores of 9.90 or higher on all four events in front of Beaver Nation.

She began the meet scoring her second consecutive 9.90 on the vault to claim the highest score of the night on the apparatus. She also added a 9.95 on bars which also was the best score of the night after Olympic teammate and now UCLA gymnast Jordan Chiles posted a 9.925. Carey's back-to-back personal-best 9.975s on beam and floor helped record the highest all-around score in the nation through three weeks of competition.

Carey ranked first all-around in that nation, shared first place on bars, tied for fourth on beam, eighth on floor and tied for ninth on the vault through Jan. 24.  

The Beavers are back in action this Saturday, Jan. 29 at California. The first road meet of the season for Oregon State gymnastics is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.
