Suni Lee had a pretty fantastic year at collegiate-level championships. After winning the women’s individual all-around title at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Lee has found her place at Auburn University.

As a freshman, Lee is currently on the Tigers team. She led the team to the NCAA championships after nearly four years — they last qualified in 2016. As a result, Lee was named WCGA Regional Gymnast (Region 4), the Women’s College Gymnastics Association announced Thursday.

“Suni has had a fantastic season so far and this award is a recognition of what she has accomplished in our region,” head coach Jeff Graba told oanow.com. “I’m happy for them and it’s a great honor not only for them but also for our program. Ultimately, however, no award will be able to quantify how much it has contributed to this program.”

Lee was named SEC Freshman of the Year earlier this season and received four All-America honors. She was a first team pick in the all-around, bars and beam and was second team on floor. She was also named to the All-SEC and SEC All-Freshman teams.
