NORMAL, Ill. - Senior Erica Schick was named Midwest Independent Conference gymnast of the week for her performance against Southeast Missouri State last weekend.

Schick took first place in the all-around competition, tying her career-best of 39.075. She also took first place on the uneven parallel bars (9.825) and second place on the floor exercise (9.825).

Head coach Bob Conkling believes this award is well deserved for Schick.

"I'm not surprised Erica won gymnast of the week," Conkling said. "She had her best meet of the year and tied her personal best on the all-around last week. She works hard and she really deserves it."

The Redbirds return to action Friday, Feb. 18, for senior night against Seattle Pacific, Ball State and Wisconsin-LaCrosse at 7 p.m. at Horton Field House.
