By NU Athletic Communications

Chicago – Senior Sienna Crouse and junior Sierra Hassel both earned Big Ten gymnastics weekly honors on March 19, announced by the conference.

Crouse was named Big Ten Gymnast of the Week after the meet of her life in the 29th Annual Masters Class this past weekend where she posted a career high in the all-around with a score of 39.700, tying the eighth highest all-around score in Nebraska history. On vault, she hit with a score of 9.85, she set a career high on uneven bars with a score of 9.975, on balance beam she finished with a score of 9.925 and tied a career high on floor exercise with a score of 9.95. This is the second Gymnast of the Week honor for Crouse. The last Nebraska Gymnast of the Week was junior Taylor Houchin the week of Jan. 22.

Hassel was named event specialist of the week for her career high performance on balance beam where the junior from Johnston, Iowa recorded the second 9.975 of the night for the Huskers, including a 10.0 from one judge. This is the first Event Specialist of the Week honor for Hassel. The last Nebraska Event Specialist of the Week was senior Megan Schweihofer the week of Jan. 22.

Freshman of the Week honors went to Tiarre Sales of Minnesota. 

The Huskers are set to compete in the Big Ten Championships on Saturday, March 23 in the evening session before awaiting the NCAA selection show on March 25 for post season play.
