The Oklahoma duo of Brie Olson and Erica Brewer, along with Iowa State's Celine Paulus have earned the final weekly gymnastics awards for the 2012 season. It is the first career weekly distinction for Paulus and Brewer, while Olson picks up her second weekly honor.

The Sooners claimed every Event Specialist honor this year (11-straight weeks), making it the first time in league history that one school has earned one award for the whole season.
