Katie Simon is this week's State Farm CMU Scholar-Athlete of the Week.
Simon, who earns the honor for the second time this season, is a junior on the gymnastics team. She claimed four of a possible five first-place finishes in a 194.650-193.750 victory over Eastern Michigan. Simon scored a season-high 39.350 to win the all-around and also took first on the bars (9.825) and beam (9.9). She tied with two of her teammates for first on the vault (9.850) and took second on the floor exercise (9.775). Simon's score on beam was a career best and tied for the top score in the MAC this season, while her all-around score was .025 off her career high and matches the MAC’s best mark this year.
Simon maintains a 3.42 grade-point average as a therapeutic recreation major.
Each week, one student-athlete is selected as the State Farm CMU Scholar-Athlete of the Week.
