Feb 14, 2023
Earns the award for the second consecutive week after posting her second straight 10.0 on beam to help No. 4 Utah (197.600) to a win in the afternoon session of the Metroplex Challenge over No. 22 Illinois (196.300), No. 18 Georgia (196.100) and Illinois St. (195.850). Now has six career Perfect 10s on beam, tying the school record that stood since former Ute Theresa Kulikowski posted six from 1999-2003, and she is one shy of tying her own program mark for most in a season (3). The senior standout has won the beam title in all but one competition in 2023 and has a season average of a 9.975 with no routine scoring below a 9.95. Also posted a 9.925 on bars to finish second overall, while she has not scored below a 9.925 in her last eight routines overall. O’Keefe leads the country on beam with a 9.975 average and is one of just eight gymnasts to record a 10.0 on the event this year. This is her third career Pac-12 Specialist of the Week honor and her 11th weekly award overall.
