Gymnast Edwards named Pac-12 Freshman/Newcomer of the week

Shelby Edwards, an all-around gymnast for the Arizona Wildcats was just awarded Freshman/Newcomer of the week by the Pac-12 conference this Tuesday.

She performed a flawless beam routine that posted a 9.750, her personal best this season. This helped her team receive its season high score on beam of 49.000.

Edwards was cleared to compete on beam from an arm injury the day before the meet on Jan. 12 when the Wildcats came in second to Stanford in a quad meet.

She improved this week on beam by doing a no-arm routine. Despite her injury Edwards greatly contributed to her team and that is why she was awarded this honor from the Pac-12.

This is her beam routine from this past weekend in Denton, Texas where Arizona won for the first time this season.
