University of Georgia gymnasts Alexa Al-Hameed and Megan Roberts earned Southeastern Conference (SEC) All-Freshman honors after No. 8 Georgia finished fourth at the SEC Championship in New Orleans. 

The All-Freshman Team is comprised of the freshmen student-athletes with the top score (including ties) on each event in the first session of the SEC Championship, and the student-athlete with the top score (including ties) on each event in the second session. The All-Freshman Team also includes the freshmen student-athletes with the top two all-around scores (including ties) in each session of the competition/Championship.
