MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. - Central Michigan's Emily Heinz was named Mid-American Conference Gymnast of the Week on Tuesday for her performance in CMU's victory over No. 24 Maryland last weekend.
Heinz tallied top two finishes on all three of her events. The senior took first on beam with a 9.800 and tied with fellow senior Brittany Petzold for first on floor with a 9.850. The team co-caption also tied for second on vault with a 9.775. Heinz’s score on floor matched a career-high.
This is the first time a CMU gymnast was honored by the MAC and the second time in Heinz's career as she was named the MAC Co-Specialist of the Week in 2011.
No. 22 Central Michigan hosts William & Mary this Friday as a part of the Royal Rumble and Trumble, a combined meet with the wrestling team. The event is set to begin at 7 p.m.
