Gymnast of the Week:
Brandi Personett, Penn State
Jr. - Katy, Texas - Cinco Ranch
Brandi Personett earns her sixth career weekly laurel and second of the season, on the heels of capturing all four individual event titles and her fourth all-around crown of the year on Saturday. Personett’s unblemished five first-place finishes aided the 15th-ranked Penn State women’s gymnastics team to a season-high team score 196.150 and the team title at the Penn State Quad, with victories over Cornell (189.675), William & Mary (188.375) and Pennsylvania (185.425).The Katy, Texas native fell just shy of her season high on vault, scoring a 9.925 for her fourth title of the year. She posted a first on bars with a career-high 9.900, her fourth top-five finish this season in that event. On beam she tallied a first-place 9.825 and recorded a first-place 9.900 on floor, marking her fourth individual title and her fourth score of 9.900 or better this season. Personett's all-around score of 39.550 is just shy of her all-time best score of 39.575 and is the second-highest all-around score of her career.
