Jordan named gymnast of week

LSU junior Jessie Jordan was named the Southeastern Conference gymnast of the week Tuesday after her career-best performance against Missouri.

Jordan shattered her career high in the all-around with a 39.600 to help No. 1 LSU score the first 198 team score in program history as the Tigers knocked off Missouri 198.050-194.825 on Friday in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

It marked Jordan’s third all-around title of the season and the fifth of her career.

The Houston native also tied for the vault title with a 9.925, sharing the title with teammates Kaleigh Dickson and Sarie Morrison. It is Jordan’s first vault title this season and the second of her career.

Jordan recorded a career-high 9.925 on floor to help LSU tally a program-best 49.700 on floor, and she added a 9.90 on bars to propel the Tigers to a 49.500. It was the sixth-highest bars total in LSU history.

LSU (8-3, 4-2) returns to action against No. 25 North Carolina State at 7 p.m. Friday in the PMAC.
