Bernard claims her first Big Ten Gymnast of the Week accolade after winning each event she competed in last week, while also leading the Wolverines to a triumph over No. 19 Southern Utah in dual-meet action.  The sophomore tumbler won the floor exercise with a career-high score of 9.825. She also claimed her second bars title (9.875) in as many meets, while tallying a first-place showing on the beam (9.825). Bernard becomes the first Wolverine to capture three individual titles in a single meet since Lindsey Bruck won bars, beam and floor titles on Feb. 17, 2006.
