Carey Named Pac-12 Freshman of the Week

Feb 1, 2022

SAN FRANCISCO – Olympic gold medalist Jade Carey was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week after posting a 39.775 all-around in her third collegiate meet donning the Orange & Black at No. 11 California on Saturday.

The selection marks Carey's second consecutive week she's been recognized by the conference after being named Gymnast and Freshman of the Week last week.

Carey registered her second-highest all-around score in her first collegiate road meet after posting at least a 9.925 or higher in all events. The Phoenix, Ariz. native took home all five event titles against the Bears winning all-around (39.775), vault (9.95), bars (9.95), beam (9.925) and floor (9.95) and now holds 15 total this season.

Her breakout vault routine was a career-high, besting her old score of 9.9 which she scored in the previous two meets. Following Saturday's contest, Carey has not scored below a 9.9 all season in 12 events.

With the help of Carey's 9.95 bar and vault routines, the Beavers posted their highest beam score of 49.200 since the 2019 season and their highest vault score of the season at 49.350.

Through four weeks of competition, Carey ranks second in the all-around, shares the number-one spot on bars, No. 3 on beam, fifth on vault and tied for seventh on the floor exercise.

Carey and the Beavers are back in action this Saturday, Feb. 5 to host No. 21 Arizona State. The "Dam Cancer" meet is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. and will be aired on the Pac-12 Network with Rich Burk and Amanda Borden commentating.
