Stanford's Janiga Named Pac-10 Gymnast of the Week

March 23, 2010

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- STANFORD senior Carly Janiga and OREGON STATE senior Mandi Rodriguez merited Pac-10 Gymnast of the Week and Special Performance of the Week honors, respectively, for March 15-21, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today. 

Janiga, a senior from Paradise Valley, Ariz., led the Cardinal to its 11th-straight win by defeating UC Davis, 196.6-194.575. Janiga earned three victories, including a career-best 9.95 on vault, a 9.925 on beam and 39.575 in the all-around. Her score in the all-around was her second-highest score this season. The six-time All-American and defending Pac-10 all-around champion has competed in every dual-meet this year and has 17 victories across all apparatuses.

This marks the Conference leading sixth-career weekly honor for Janiga and Stanford’s 19th all-time Pac-10 Gymnast of the Week selection. 

Rodriguez, a native of Baldwin Park, Calif., was impressive on senior night as she recorded a personal-best 9.95 on vault to capture the win as the seventh-ranked Beavers defeated No. 18 Kentucky, 196.65-195.275. The senior also captured the individual title on with a 9.925 as OSU improved to 13-3. 

This marks the fifth-career Pac-10 Special Performance honor for Rodriguez and Oregon State’s tenth all-time selection.
