By: UCLA Athletics
Five UCLA gymnasts were awarded regular season All-America honors by the National Association of College Gymnastics Coaches (NACGC/W). The Bruins earned a total of three first-team honors and three second-team honors.

First-team honorees were Samantha Peszek and Danusia Francis on balance beam and Sydney Sawa on floor exercise. Earning second-team acclaim were Olivia Courtney on vault and Peszek and Sophina DeJesus on uneven bars.

This is the second year the NACGC/W has awarded All-Americans for the regular season. First-team All-Americans are the Top 8 ranked gymnasts on each event and the all-around. Second-team All-Americans are the gymnasts ranked No. 9-16.

These are the first regular season All-America honors for Peszek, Sawa and DeJesus. Francis and Courtney were honored last season on their respective events. Courtney now has a total of nine All-America honors in her career. Peszek has six, Francis three, and Sawa and DeJesus two each.
