For an eighth time this season, freshman Rachel Updike has been chosen as Big 12 Newcomer of the Week.

Her eight weekly awards this season are the most of any Big 12 gymnast.

This week, Missouri competed at a quad meet in Denver, where Updike took the vault title with a score of 9.950 — a tie for her personal best — and also tied for first on floor with a 9.875.

The Tigers face No. 4 Alabama this week at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
