Alex McMurtry made the most of her final appearance at Exactech Arena in front of Gators fans.

McMurtry won all five events (including the all-around title) in #5 Florida’s dominating Senior Day victory over # 11 Nebraska on Friday.

McMurtry scored meet highs of 9.975 on both the uneven bars and the balance beam routine. McMurtry finished the floor excercise with a 9.925 to take the title and tied for the highest vault score of 9.950.

McMurty tied a Florida record for highest all-around score with a total of 39.825. Bridget Sloan and Alaina Johnson previously set the mark in 2014. McMurtry also became the first Gator gymnast since 2011 to win each event of a meet.

On Tuesday, the SEC named McMurtry the Gymnast of the Week for her performance.

McMurtry entered this season as a 15 time All-American and won the Honda Award as the top collegiate gymnast in 2017.

Florida will head to St. Louis on March 24 for the SEC Championship.
