COLUMBIA — Missouri gymnasts Mary Burke and Rachel Updike each received Big 12 Conference honors this week. Burke was named Gymnast of the Week, and Updike won Newcomer of the Week.

The award is Updike’s seventh this season. One more award and she will break Oklahoma’s Kiera Redmond-Sturns 2008 record for most individual awards in a season.

The Tigers next meet will be March 3 against Denver, West Virginia and Western Michigan. Denver University will host the event.
