Auburn’s Suni Lee has been named one of four finalists for the gymnastics Honda Award, presented by the Collegiate Women Sports Awards.
The Honda Award is presented to the top collegiate female athlete in 12 sports each season.
Lee is a finalist in gymnastics alongside Florida’s Trinity Thomas, Minnesota’s Lexy Ramler and Oregon State’s Jade Carey.
Lee came out on top for a singular public championship on shaft on Thursday at the NCAA Championships, while aiding push the Tigers to its best completion in program history at the group last.
Lee finished second at the national meet in the all-around behind only Thomas. Carey finished fourth. Ramler finished sixth in the all-around.
Thomas and Ramler are both seniors and veterans to the college game while Lee and Carey are freshmen. They teamed together for Team USA at the Olympics last summer, both representing the United States in the all-around after star Simone Biles was sidelined. Lee won the all-around and won bronze on bars while Carey won gold on floor.
The Honda Award finalists were selected by a group representing the Women’s Collegiate Gymnastics Association.
