Gymnast of the Week:
Brandi Personett, Penn State
Jr. - Katy, Texas - Cinco Ranch
Junior Brandi Personett earned the Ann Carr Award for the most inspirational gymnast of the meet, helping lead Penn State to a first place finish over Alabama and Ohio State last week after posting a career-best 39.600 in the all-around event. Her score marked the highest all-around total since the 2003 season. The Katy, Texas native tallied a first-place 9.900 on vault, a first-place and career-high 9.925 on bars, a sixth-place 9.825 on beam and a first-place and career-high-tying 9.950 on floor en route to the all-around crown, her fifth individual all-around title of the season. The vault title was the seventh of the season for Personett, who also picked up her third uneven bars crown, her seventh floor title and her sixth individual all-around first-place finish. The award marks Personett’s fourth weekly laurel of the season, and the eighth of her career.
