Penn State women’s gymnastics: Nittany Lions sweep awards

Penn State swept all three weekly Big Ten awards in the opening week for conference honors of the 2014 season.

Randi Lau was named Big Ten Gymnast of the Week, Nicole Medvitz was named Freshman of the Week and Kassidy Stauder picked up Event Specialist of the Week following a season-opening 193.925-193.550 victory at Iowa State on Sunday.

Lau, a junior trasfer from LSU, won the vault and finished second in the all-around. Medvitz took third on the balance beam, an event win for Penn State that sealed the team victory. Stauder finished third overall and led the Nittany Lions on the uneven bars.

Penn State competes in a quad meet at Kentucky on Friday.
