Northern Illinois gymnast earns MAC honors

For the second week in a row, Northern Illinois gymnastics senior Natasha Jufko tied her career high and won the balance beam event with a score of 9.850 to earn Mid-American Conference Specialist of the Week honors as announced by the league Tuesday.

There was only one score higher than 9.850 in the entire meet, but her 9.850 was the Huskies’ highest score of the meet and ties her beam score last week as the highest score on any event by an NIU gymnast in 2014.

She tied for first place on balance beam with Kent State’s Marie Case.
