Gymnast of the Week
Laura Johnson, Minnesota
Sr., Albuquerque, N.M./La Cueva
Johnson won all four individual events plus the all-around title in dual-meet action against Iowa to claim Gymnast of the Week accolades. It was the second time this season she has made a clean sweep of the event titles after also achieving this feat at the Best of Minnesota meet on Feb. 11. She set season-best marks on the vault (9.900) and in the all-around (39.475) at Iowa, while also tying her season-high mark of 9.825 on the beam. Earlier in the week, Johnson was Minnesota's top scorer on the vault, bars, floor and in the all-around against Iowa State.
