The College Gymnastics Association named Stanford senior Eddie Penev its Gymnast of the Week on Wednesday on the heels of his outstanding showing at the Collegiate Challenge on Saturday.
In his last performance in his home gym, Penev scored a season-high 16.000 in the floor exercise, 15.600 in the vault and 88.950 in the all-around, winning all three events. Penev won the individual national championship in the vault as a freshman and has never eclipsed his title-winning score of 16.450, but came close to besting the top floor (16.200) and all-around (89.200) marks of his career this weekend.
Wednesday’s recognition was the second such honor for Penev this season and the fourth of his Stanford career.
No. 5 Stanford will travel to West Point for a meet against No. 14 Army and Springfield this Saturday.
