Junior gymnasts Kelsey Morris and Ciera Perkins excelled at the 2014 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Championships as Perkins earned Second Team All-American honors while both set Boise State records in each of their events.
“Ciera is our first All-American on floor exercise,” co-head coach Tina Bird told Broncosports. “This is such an honor for a very deserving gymnast and we are so happy
Perkins earned a score of 9.90 for her floor routine. She would finish in a tie for eighth-place with seven other gymnasts from Alabama, Florida, UCLA and Utah. Perkins became the first Bronco to be named an All-American in the floor exercise and the fourth All-American in the history of Boise State gymnastics.
Kelsey Morris took part in the uneven bars and her score of 9.850 tied the highest score in Boise State history at the national championships in the event. She tied for 10th with 12 other competitors from Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, UCLA and Utah.
“We’re extremely proud of Kelsey and Ciera,” said Bird. “They did awesome routines and represented Boise State well. They will be great leaders to our dedicated and hungry team going into next season.”
