Baylor acrobatics & tumbling junior back/base Lauren Sturm was named National Collegiate Acrobatics & Tumbling Association (NCATA) Player of the Week, the organization announced Tuesday.

Sturm earned the honor for the first time in her career and gave Baylor its fifth such all-time recognition – all coming under the tutelage of third-year head coach Felecia Mulkey. The last Bear to receive the award was Kiara Nowlin on April 12, 2016.

Sturm was a large influence in BU’s 281.110-272.700 season-opening win over Quinnipiac on Sunday, participating in 11 total heats. The McKinney, Texas native was a factor in the highest-scoring heat of each event, helped Baylor gather six heat victories, and was a member of the Bears' compulsory toss heat, the only perfect, 10.0 score recorded this season by any team.
