NORMAN – For the second consecutive week, junior Jade Degouveia (Event Specialist of the Week) and freshman Olivia Trautman (Newcomer of the Week) earned Big 12 weekly awards, the conference announced Monday.

The duo contributed to the first NCAA vault lineup to feature six 10.0 start value vaults since the devaluation of the Yurchenko full. The Sooners now hold the top two scores on vault this season.. Both also appeared on at least two events, helping lead OU to the highest score of the weekend.

Degouveia was named the Big 12 Event Specialist for the second time in her career after tying her career high on vault and setting her career high on floor. The junior won the event title on vault with a 9.950 on her Yurchenko 1.5. On floor, she set a career high with a 9.850. This is the third overall honor for Degouveia.

Trautman earned her second straight weekly honor as she once again took home the floor title. The freshman earned a 9.925 on floor and currently ranks third nationally on the event. Trautman added a career high on vault with a 9.875 and notched a 9.825 as she led off on beam.

The Sooners will travel to North Carolina on Saturday, Jan. 19, to take on UNC and Ball State in a tri-meet. The meet is slated for a 1 p.m. CT start.
