PARK RIDGE, ILL. – Minnesota gymnast Lindsay Mable has been named Big Ten Freshman of the Week for her performance in the Gophers’ win at the Best of Minnesota/Always Dreaming Invitational.
Mable tied her personal-best with a first-place score of 9.925 on floor and recorded a season-best 9.875 for second place on vault, as Minnesota remained undefeated by scoring 196.000 points during Saturday’s meet.
It’s the third Big Ten Freshman of the Week honor this season for Mable, who also tied for second on balance beam with a score of 9.850 and took second place in the all-around (38.750) despite taking a fall on bars (9.100).
