The O'Fallon, Ill., native won the all-around, scoring a team season-high 39.625 and also recorded season-high scores of 9.925 on the beam and floor, placing first and third, respectively.

The Gymnast of the Week nod is Zamarripa's sixth of her career. She has earned Special Performance of the Week honors twice this year and seven times total in her career.
