Then-junior Karrie Thomas during the last home meet against Michigan on March 6, 2020.

Senior Karrie Thomas won her second career Event Specialist of the Week award on Tuesday.

Thomasโ€™s fourth career weekly award comes after she tied her career high with a 9.875 on beam at the North Carolina State quad meet. The achievement marked her first career event title on beam. She added a 9.825 on bars in the meet.

Thomas is the fifth Sooner to win the Event Specialist of the Week award in seven weeks so far this season โ€” joining freshman Kat LeVasseur, junior Allie Stern, sophomore Jenna Dunn and senior Jordan Draper. Itโ€™s the seventh time in program history that five different athletes have won the award in the same season, and the first occurrence since 2017.

OU competes next when it returns to the Lloyd Noble Center for the first time in February at 6:45 p.m. CT on Feb. 26 against No. 10 Denver, Texas Womanโ€™s and Lindenwood.
