Fayetteville – After a pair of career best 9.925’s on the vault and floor against Alabama, senior All-American Kelci Lewis has been named the Southeastern Conference Specialist of the Week.

“I am very excited for Kelci,” co-head coach Mark Cook said. “She had an excellent vault last week and really stuck her landing, as everyone did for the meet. Her floor routine was just as good as she has been hitting in practice and it is very nice to see her perform just as well in the meet.”
 
Lewis competed in two events for the Razorbacks as Arkansas tied Alabama 197.100-197.100. She recorded a 9.925 on vault as the Razorbacks totaled 49.425 on the apparatus, the third highest vault rotation in school history.

Lewis later won the floor exercise with a 9.925 and led Arkansas to a 49.350 in that event, helping secure the tie with Alabama. Each of the marks for Lewis were career highs. 

The SEC award is the first of her career. Lewis is the ninth Razorback to earn SEC honors, joining Dana McQuillin, Katie Hardman, Cassie Drew, Michelle Stout, Casy Jo Magee, Jaime Pisani, Katherine Grable and Sydnie Dillard.

Lewis and the No. 25 Razorbacks return to competition Friday to host a quad-meet featuring Missouri, Centenary and Lindenwood. The meet is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
