WOODLAND, Calif. - Air Force senior team captain Brittany Dutton was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Week, the conference office announced on Tuesday, Jan. 25.

Dutton earned career-high scores in winning efforts on the uneven bars (9.775) and all-around (38.625) to help the Falcons to a season-best 191.475-190.425 victory over MPSF foe Seattle Pacific.

The senior leads the conference on the vault with an average of 9.650, while ranking second in the all-around with a 37.875 average.
