Priessman Named to SEC Community Service Team

BATON ROUGE – LSU gymnastics senior Lexie Priessman has been named to the Southeastern Conference Community Service team for her efforts in the Baton Rouge area, the league office announced Tuesday.

Priessman, an outstanding specialist for the Tigers on vault, bars and floor, leads the charge of the LSU gymnastics team’s community service efforts. She has compiled more than 70 of LSU’s nearly 400 total hours of service on campus and in the Baton Rouge area.

The Cincinnati, Ohio native has been a volunteer at Colerain and Gardere Elementary Schools throughout the year. She also volunteered with off-campus events like McMain’s Bike Event, Spook ‘N Rowe, and Blue Ribbon Soiree. On campus, Priessman has also worked with Thanksgiving with the Tigers and Halloween BOOzar.

The SEC sponsors Community Service Teams for all 21 league sponsored sports. The Community Service Team looks to highlight a student-athlete from each school who gives back to their community in superior service efforts.

Priessman and the third-ranked LSU gymnastics team is coming off the program’s third-straight
SEC Championship. The squad will take off a week from competition before returning to the floor for the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional April 5-6 in the PMAC.
