Senior gymnast Katherine Prouty had a stellar weekend in Ithaca, N.Y., at the National Collegiate Gymnastics Association Individual Championships. There, she earned first team All-America honors on the vault, uneven bars and balance beam by placing or tying for fourth place in all three events as well as placing second in the all-around.

Prouty set personal bests on the vault (9.70), uneven bars (9.675) and the balance beam (9.650). Her 9.70 on the vault tied the school record set by Naomi De Lara in 2011. In the all-around, Prouty scored a school record of 38.550 points, just behind winner Katie Florilli of the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater’s score of 38.750.

Freshman Kaylee Johdahl of Anoka, Minn. placed 20th in the floor exercise with a personal best of 9.725 and sophomore Randi Schorzman from Buckley, Wash., took 51st on the balance beam with a score of 8.650.
