🔼  Fierce Finish. Three of the final weekly Mountain West Gymnastics honors go to Spartans Lauren Macpherson and Mia Nelson! Lauren was named Beam Specialist of the Week after scoring a 9.925. It’s her 11th conference honor this season and fourth beam honor. Mia was named Floor Specialist and Freshman of the Week. She won her second floor title of the season with a career-best 9.950. She also posted the highest score by a freshman last week. The Spartans will compete at the inaugural Mountain West Championships this Saturday.

🔼 Booked & Busy. The women’s tennis team will host four matches in seven days, starting today! They’ll host Hawaii at noon today and New Mexico on Friday at 11 am. Four Spartans have earned Mountain West weekly awards this season, leading the conference.

🔼 Single Shot. The Spartans lone run last night came from Jeriah Lewis’ first home run of the season. He launched the long ball on the first pitch he saw in the third inning. Dalton Bowling and Nik Trapani hit doubles to grab some extra bases. The Spartans fell to Santa Clara, 7-1. They’ll get back into conference play this weekend as they head to New Mexico.
