COLUMBIA, Mo. — Two Missouri gymnasts are included on this season's All-Big 12 Gymnastics Team. Senior All-American Sarah Shire and sophomore Mary Burke, who rank first and second in the conference respectively in the all-around, earned the honor, making it a Missouri sweep in the category.

Shire highlighted the annual team, taking all-conference honors in all four events and in the all-around. It is the third time in as many years Shire has been named to the vault team, the second for bars and beam and the first time for floor. This is the first time since 2007 that the Big 12 has named an all-around team.

Burke appears for the first time on the regular-season list. She was named to the All-Big 12 Championship Team on vault after the 2009 championship meet. The Illinois native just missed out on earning all-conference honors on bars as she currently ranks fifth in the conference on the event.

The 2010 All-Big 12 Gymnastics team includes the top four conference gymnasts with the highest regional qualifying score (RQS) in each event and the two all-around competitors. RQS figures are based off the final regular-season GymInfo rankings.

The 2010 Big 12 Gymnastics Championship is set for March 27 in Lincoln, Neb.
