UCLA freshman Hallie Mossett was selected the Pac-12 Freshman/Newcomer of the Week for the week of Jan. 27-Feb. 2.
Mossett had another strong meet at Cal, tying for first place on bars with a career-high 9.9, tying for second on beam with a career-high 9.875 and scoring 9.75 on vault to help the Bruins defeat the Bears on the road, 196-575-195.550. Her scores helped UCLA record season-highs on both bars (49.300) and beam (49.050). Mossett has hit all 12 routines she has competed this season and is averaging 9.75 or better on each event.
