FT. WORTH, Tx. (WKRG) — Alabama gymnast Abby Armbrecht closed her career in style at the NCAA Championships in Fort Worth, Texas, Friday afternoon, earning All-America honors with her final floor exercise routine for the Crimson Tide.

The senior from Mobile scored a 9.9125 in front of a six-judge panel with a floor routine that included an extremely difficult double layout as her first tumbling pass.

Finishing seventh in session one of the NCAA Championships Semifinals earned Armbrecht All-America honors for the first time in her career. She was the only individual competitor to earn All-America recognition on the floor out of the first session.

A UMS-Wright graduate, Armbrecht adds All-America honors to a resume that already includes Scholastic All-America recognition as well as All-SEC and SEC Academic Honor Roll accolades. She earned her bachelor’s degree in marketing last spring and is slated to graduate with a master’s in digital and social media marketing in May.
