2024 SEC Gymnastics Championships Recap: LSU wins it all

By Elizabeth Hunter | March 24, 2024
The LSU gymnastics team celebrates winning the 2024 SEC Gymnastics Championships.

The LSU Tigers won the 2024 SEC Gymnastics Championships on Saturday. The Tigers steamrolled the other teams after matching their program high SEC championship score with a 198.075.

The second place team, Alabama, was over three-tenths behind the Tigers.

This is the Tigers first championship win since 2019 and adds a fifth trophy to their collection.

Head Coach Jay Clark was an assistant coach with the program in 2019, so this marks his first SEC title as head coach of the Tigers.

With the last victory happening five years ago, this was the first win for many of LSU’s current athletes. An exception is Savannah Schoenherr, who won two SEC titles as a Florida Gator before transferring to LSU this season.

LSU didn’t just claim the team victory, but a share of every individual title as well.

Tiger star Haleigh Bryant claimed her first SEC all-around title win with a 39.800 and her second SEC vault title with a 9.975. Ashley Cowan and Missouri’s Mara Titarsolej both scored a 9.95 on bars to claim their first SEC titles. LSU freshman Konnor McClain claimed the title on beam for her flawless 10.0. This was the only perfect score given out over the two sessions of competition. There was a three-way tie for the floor title between LSU’s Kiya Johnson and KJ Johnson and Kentucky’s Raena Worley – all posting 9.975s. 

The Tigers didn’t stay on top the whole meet. They were tied with Alabama after the first rotation, then tied with Kentucky after the second rotation, and then behind Kentucky by 0.025 after the third rotation. But after posting their highest recorded score by the program at the SEC championship on floor (49.675), LSU was able to push far ahead of the other teams to secure the win. 

All eight SEC teams are ranked in the top 20, so they now await regional assignments for the NCAA tournament. The host locations are Florida, Michigan, Arkansas, and Cal. The selection show will happen on Monday, March 25 at 12 p.m. ET and can be streamed on NCAA.com.
