COLUMBIA, Mo - Last night at the Missouri Theater in downtown Columbia, Mo., Mizzou Athletics hosted the 2014 ROARS Awards Ceremony. Among the 23 awards handed out, senior Cathryn Aliceaacosta, junior Briana Conkle and senior Mackenzie McGill walked away with honors for the Missouri gymnastics program.

Aliceaacosta was named the female "Courage Award" winner, after working her way through an injury riddled 2014 gymnastics season. Despite being sidelined due to injury this past year, Aliceaacosta remained one of the top emotional leaders on the team. The Houston, Texas native was one of two seniors on this year's Tigers gymnastics roster, and consistently provided excellent leadership to her peers.

Conkle walked away from the Missouri Theater Monday evening with the female "Love of the Game" award. The Fleming Island, Fla. native is widely recognized from her teammates and coaching staff, due to her constant energy and excitement for the sport of gymnastics. Conkle's exuberant personality was contagious throughout the year, as the junior collected seven new career-highs in 2014.

To round out Missouri gymnastics' impressive night at the 2014 ROARS, McGill took home the female "Varsity M" award. McGill concluded her four year Tigers gymnastics career this season, and impressed both on-and-off the competition floor. The Bartlesville, Okla. native competed on beam in every meet this year, highlighted by a 9.800 score on Feb. 1 at North Carolina State. McGill was arguably even more impressive outside the gym, as she was named to the 2014 SEC Gymnastics Community Service Team.
