All-Around Performance

Gymnast Janae Cox is West Virginia's athlete of the week following her outstanding showing against North Carolina State.

The junior made her first appearance of the season in the all-around competition against the ranked Wolfpack, and made it a sparkler. She won the all-around with a score of 39.025, and also took first place honors in the vault with a 9.8.

Cox's performance helped spark the Mountaineers to a 192.55 to 191.10 win over the ACC power. Her score marked the 21st time in her career that she has topped the 39.0 mark. That figure is second all-time to Kristen Macrie's school record of 24.

The junior from Otisco, Ind., was WVU's sole representative at the NCAA championships last year.
