Minnesota women’s gymnastics sophomore Lindsay Mable has earned regular season All-America honors from the National Association of College Gymnastics Coaches (NACGC/W). A two-time First-Team All-Big Ten honoree, Mable received First-Team All-America accolades both on the all-around and the floor exercise and received Second-Team All-America laurels on vault.
This marks the second year the NACGC/W has announced All-America teams for the regular season. Members of the first team are the top eight ranked gymnasts on each event and the all-around. Members of the second team are gymnasts who were ranked No. 9-16. Mable earned Second-Team All-America plaudits for both all-around and floor exercise as a freshman in 2012.
After becoming Minnesota’s first Big Ten All-Around champion since 2009 with a school-record 39.650 score, she tied for fifth in the nation with a Regional Qualifying Score (RQS) of 39.565. A perfect 10 score on the vault at the meet, the school’s third-ever and first since 2002 that helped her earn the conference title, put her in a tie for 11th in the nation with a 9.925 vault RQS. She tied for fifth in the country on the floor with a 9.94 RQS.
A two-time Big Ten Gymnast of the Week winner, Minnesota’s first 2009, the Aurora, Colo. native has 23 event wins and nine all-around titles in 13 meets and tied or broke Minnesota’s all-time all-around record of 39.600 four times this season. Her 39.650 from last Saturday’s Big Ten Championships now stands alone as the record.
Mable’s outstanding season helped lead the Gophers to a No. 14 ranking. Minnesota will host second-ranked Oklahoma, No. 11 Illinois, California, Southern Utah, and San Jose State in an NCAA Regional April 5 at 6 p.m. CT at the Sports Pavilion.
