Abbey Alder receives All-America honors

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio — The Women’s Collegiate Gymnastics Association announced regular-season All-America Award winners on Thursday, naming BYU senior Abbey Miner-Alder a second-team All-American on the floor apparatus. 

Based off their National Qualifying Score, student-athletes within the top eight tallies received first-team recognition. Those ranked Nos.9-16 earned second-team status. 

This season, Alder pulled a NQS of 9.944 on floor, tying for 10th in the nation. On February 26, she hit a new career high, performing a nearly perfect 9.975 routine. This would contribute to her impressive NQS. 

This is Alder’s first All-America recognition during her time as a Cougar.
