PARK RIDGE, ILL. – Minnesota’s Lindsay Mable has once again been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week for women’s gymnastics, as announced by the conference office Monday afternoon.
Mable earns the award for the third consecutive week, and for the fifth time in eight weeks this season, after helping Minnesota record its second-highest team total in the program’s history with a score of 197.175 at No. 2 Florida.
Minnesota’s first-year gymnast from Aurora, Colo. (Eaglecrest HS/Colorado Gymnastics Insitute) established new personal-bests on vault, uneven bars and all-around at Florida. Mable tied for second on vault (9.925), was sixth on bars (9.850) and fourth in the all-around (39.525). She defeated 2009 World All-Around champion and 2008 Olympian Bridget Sloan on vault, and her all-around total ties for fourth-best in program history and was just .225 behind Sloan's personal-best total.
Minnesota (12-3, 4-1 Big Ten), which is ranked 14th in this week’s GymInfo Top 25, returns home this weekend for a quad meet with No. 12 Nebraska, No. 24 Arkansas and Centenary. The meet will take place at the Sports Pavilion on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. CT.
