After breaking the Rutgers gymnastics record for highest all-around score of 39.525 last weekend, Hannah Joyner made more history on Tuesday. She became the first Scarlet Knight ever to be named Big Ten Gymnast of the Week.
Joyner’s record breaking performance led Rutgers in producing a new program record for a home meet team score with a 196.375 on Saturday. RU also delivered a program record score on the beam as a team in part due to Joyner.
Against No. 23 Illinois, Joyner won two events in the meet, the bars and the beam. Her 9.900 on bars tied a career-high, while her 9.925 on beam tied for the fifth-best score in program history on her way to the best all-around score for a Rutgers gymnast.
