Freshman Lindsay Mable has earned regular season All-America honors from the National Association of College Gymnastics Coaches (NACGC/W). A First-Team All-Big Ten honoree and the Big Ten Freshman of the Year, Mable received Second-Team All-America accolades for both all-around and floor exercise.
This marks the first 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 ended the regular season tied for 14th in the all-around with an RQS of 39.450, and she was also tied for 14th on floor exercise (9.915 RQS). She was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week six times this season.
Mable helped Minnesota earn its first trip to the NCAA Championships on Saturday evening, as she and the Gophers finished second at the Gainesville Regional with a team score of 197.100 points.
