Pomeroy was named Co-Gymnast of the Week after finishing first on the parallel bars and the beam, while also helping the Fighting Illini claim a dual-meet victory over Illinois State. She claimed the parallel bars with a season-best score of 9.875 and then followed with another first-place finish on the beam (9.775).

She tallied a 9.925 on the floor and scored a 9.875 on the vault to tie for first place in both events with teammate Jenny Deiley.
