WIAC Announces Weekly Honorees

Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference athletes turned in several career-best performances to earn weekly honors from the league.

Sophomore Melissa Baudhuin, an Oshkosh West product who competes at Winona State University, was named the specialist of the week. She placed first in the balance beam (9.35) and floor exercise (9.225) and captured second on the vault (9.125) in a dual meet against Gustavus Adolphus. The Warriors won 176.925 to 171.225 in the first meet of the year for both schools.

UW-Whitewater junior Justine Weyer of Germantown earned top honors for all-around, winning the title with a score of 37.8 during the Warhawks' 180.4 to 174.85 dual meet verdict against UW-Oshkosh.

Weyer claimed first in all four events--9.45 in the vault, 9.425 in the uneven bars, 9.40 in the balance beam and 9.525 on the floor exercise—to register the sixth-highest overall total in school's record book.
