Cyclones Land Two On All-Big 12 Gymnastics Team
AMES, Iowa - Iowa State gymnasts Camille Santerre-Gervais and Caitlin Brown were both named to the 2014 All-Big 12 Gymnastics team, the league office announced on Wednesday. With the duo of all-conference selections, Iowa State had the second-most gymnasts earn the honor, behind only Oklahoma.
It was the second career all-conference honor for Santerre-Gervais, a senior, who also picked up All-Big 12 recognition in 2011. The St.-Lazare, Quebec native, received the recognition for having the second-highest regional qualifying score (RQS) on uneven bars in the Big 12. Santerre-Gervais has had a breakout season on bars, putting up scores of 9.9 or better five times. Santerre-Gervais's season was highlighted by two career-high routines of 9.95, tying a school-record. Only four other gymnasts in school history have scored a 9.95 on bars.
Brown was one of just two gymnasts in the Big 12 to be honored for performance in the all-around this season. The Apple Valley, Minn. native, has been the Cyclones' lone all-around competitor for the majority of the year and has performed in all 40 of Iowa State's event rotations this season. Brown set a career-high of 39.275 in the all-around in the Cyclones' 196.025-194.175 victory over West Virginia.
The 2014 All-Big 12 Gymnastics Team includes the top three conference gymnasts with the highest regional qualifying score in each event and two all-around competitors. RQS figures are based off the final regular season GymInfo Rankings.
