Campbell, Flatley Awarded Pac-12 Weekly Honors
UCLA sophomore Chae Campbell was named the Pac-12's Gymnast of the Week, and senior Norah Flatley earned the Pac-12 Coaches Choice award for the final week of the regular season.
Campbell, the first Bruin to win Gymnast of the Week honors this season, had two perfect scores in UCLA's 197.00-193.975 win over UC Davis on Mar. 12, earning the maximum score on her 9.950 vault for the second consecutive week and scoring her second perfect 10 on floor in three weeks. Campbell recorded a new career-high of 39.725 in the all-around to capture her third all-around win of the season. She also placed second on balance beam with a 9.900 and fourth on uneven bars with a leadoff 9.875 that helped the Bruins record a season-high team score of 49.475 on the event. The 2021 Pac-12 Freshman of the Year has hit all 30 routines she has competed this season and 74 in a row, her only fall coming in her second-ever routine.
Flatley is the first Coaches Choice winner for UCLA this season. In her last home meet, the senior scored 39.575 in the all-around, the second-highest all-around score in her career, and nearly scored a leadoff perfect 10 on floor, recording a career-best 9.975. She also scored 9.925 on uneven bars to tie for second place, contributing greatly to UCLA's season-high total of 49.475 on the event. Flatley is having the best season of her career, competing in the all-around in six meets after having only gone all-around once before in three seasons. She is averaging 39.396 for the year but 39.575 in her last four meets. She leads the team in routines competed with 33 out of 36 and is the Bruins' leading point-scorer this year with 324.35 points.
Joining the Bruin duo as Pac-12 weekly award-winners are Oregon State's Jade Carey (Freshman of the Week) and California's Milan Clausi (Specialist of the Week). This is Campbell's fourth Pac-12 weekly award and Flatley's second. Campbell was a three-time Freshman of the Week winner in 2021, and Flatley won Freshman of the Week honors once in 2019.
UCLA will next compete at the Pac-12 Championships on Saturday, Mar. 19. The Bruins are in the afternoon session, which begins at 1 pm MT/12 pm PT.
