PHILADELPHIA - For Week 8 of competition, Penn gymnast Megan Milavec was named the ECAC's Rookie of the Week, while sophomore Katie Graham was honored as the Coaches' Choice.
In the Quakers' most recent meet hosted by Pitt last Friday, Milavec scored a career high on all three of her events. She earned a 9.450 on bars, a 9.500 on floor, and a team best 9.725 on beam. Since the team has been riddled with major injuries for much of the season, the freshman has risen to the occasion and has had all of her scores count towards the team final mark.
Graham scored he season best scores on vault and beam in last week's meet, including a 9.550 on vault and 9.600 on beam. Although the Quakers finished in third place, they scored their highest mark of the season and also broke a losing streak to George Washington, with help from Graham's contributions.
Penn is back in action tonight, hosting Maryland, Southern Connecticut, and Temple in Hutchinson Gymnasium at 7 p.m.
