Arkansas senior Sophia Carter earned All-SEC honors for the third time in her career after posting a 9.95 on the floor exercise at the SEC Championships, the league office announced on Wednesday.

Arkansas posted a 49.425 on the floor exercise at SECs on Saturday in Huntsville, Ala., its highest score on that event at the championship.
