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.
