NORMAN – Fresh off a season opening victory, a trio of Sooners swept the Big 12 weekly honors, the conference announced Tuesday.

Senior Anastasia Webb (Gymnast of the Week), freshman Katherine LeVasseur (Event Specialist of the Week) and freshman Audrey Davis (Newcomer of the Week) each received accolades from the league. The honor is the 11th total of Webb's career and fourth Gymnast of the Week honor.

The trio were instrumental in leading OU to a 197.450 in their victory over No. 21 Arizona State. Davis, LeVasseur and Webb combined for nine of OU's 24 routines on Sunday.
