CMU's Pedrick named MAC Gymnast of the Week

In just the first week of the season, Central Michigan gymnastics junior Denelle Pedrick has earned Mid-American Conference Gymnast of the Week honors.

Led by Pedrick, the 30th-ranked Chippewas started their season with a strong performance in their home quad-team meet Sunday at McGuirk Arena against No. 22 Illinois, No. 33 Arizona and Bridgeport, a Division II powerhouse.

sPedrick set the pace for the Chippewas on the floor exercise. She posted a 9.850 on the final rotation for a team score of 49.125 in that event and a 194.875 team total for the meet. That performance was just enough, as it gave the Chippewas a slim victory in come-from-behind fashion on Sunday.
