On the heels of a season-opening win Saturday at the Ozone Collegiate Gymnastics Classic in Knoxville, Tenn., Illinois State sophomore gymnast Meredith LaRoche was named Midwest Independent Conference Gymnast of the Week Tuesday.
LaRoche won the all-around competition with a personal best score of 38.925. Two first place ties in both balance beam and floor event is what springboarded her into the top overall spot. The Redbirds won the event with a score of 192.550. Temple was a close second with a score total of 192.225.
LaRoche and the ISU gymnastics team are back in action Saturday when they travel to Bowling Green, Ohio, to take on the Bowling Green State Falcons inside Anderson Arena.
