Men's Gymnast of the Week
Paul Ruggeri, Illinois
Fr., Manlius, N.Y. / Fayetteville Manlius
Ruggeri earns his second consecutive weekly accolade and the second of his career after his performance against No. 1 Penn State last weekend. Ruggeri won three individual titles and placed second in the all-around. The freshman scored wins on the floor (15.700), the vault (16.050) and the high bar (14.750), improving his total to seven event titles on the year. The three individual titles are a career-best for the Manlius, N.Y. native in one meet. Ruggeri's scores in his winning events and the all-around set new career highs and he also tied his best mark on the pommel horse (13.750).
