MOUNT PLEASANT - Three members of the Central Michigan gymnastics team have been named to the Academic All-Mid-American Conference team.

Cheryl Conlin, Andrea de la Garza and Kristin Teubner were selected to the squad. This is the second time that de la Garza and Teubner have received this honor while it is the first time Conlin has been recognized. This is the second straight season that CMU has had three student-athletes named the Academic All-MAC team.

Conlin earned first team All-MAC honors after she tied for first place on floor with a career-high 9.875 at the MAC Championships. She tallied seven first-place finishes during the season with five coming on floor and had the MAC's top regional qualifying score on floor with a 9.850. The senior holds a 3.33 grade-point average while majoring in health fitness.

De la Garza tallied a pair of second place finishes at the MAC Championships to earn second team All-MAC honors. She was CMU's top scorer on bars (9.800), floor (9.800) and in the all-around (39.150) at the NCAA Regional Championships. The senior tallied 10 first place finishes and finished in the top three 34 times this season. She is majoring in health fitness and holds a 3.63 grade-point average.

Teubner was named the MAC Co-Gymnast of the Year, the third time a CMU gymnast has won this award. She won three events at the MAC Championships: beam (9.900), floor (9.875) and the all-around (39.325), and earned first team All-MAC honors. The junior holds a 3.7 grade-point average as a health fitness major.

Earning Academic All-MAC Honorable Mention honors was redshirt freshman Meaghan McWhorter who carries a 3.62 GPA as a political science major.
