Jenifer Simbhudas honored


Competing in the final home meet of her career, senior Jenifer Simbhudas gave it her all this past weekend against No. 24 Kentucky.

She helped lead the 23rd-ranked GymHawks to a 196.525-194.875 victory, the highest team score of the season and was named Big Ten Gymnast of the Week.

Simbhudas won three of the four events, scoring a 9.900 on the vault, a 9.875 on balance beam, and a 9.925 on the floor exercise. She also finished tied for fourth on the uneven bars with a 9.825. The Markham, Ont., native also won the all-around title by setting a new career-high of 39.525, the eighth highest all-around score in school history, which broke her previous personal record of 39.450.

In the North Central Region, Simbhudas is currently eighth in Troester’s all-around rankings, averaging a 39.065.

This is the third time Simbhudas has been honored as the Big Ten Gymnast of the Week with her younger sister Rebecca Simbhudas receiving the honor earlier in the season.
