Individually, Boise State's Kelsey Morris and Amanda Otuafi recorded the highest all-around and individual event scores, earning MRGC Gymnast and Specialist of the Week honors, respectively.

Morris tallied a 38.950 in the all-around, scoring a 9.750 on vault, 9.850 on bars, 9.650 on beam and a 9.700 on floor. Her score on bars also helped the Snohomish, Wash. native to tie for the individual title on that event as well.

The alliance is not a formally recognize conference by the NCAA, but is in the process of gaining said status for the 2014-15 season.
