Academic Honor For Gopher Star
Indianapolis, IN (Learfield) -- Golden Gopher star women's gymnast Lindsay Mable has been chosen to receive the coveted "Wayne Duke Postgraduate Award" from the Big Ten Conference.
Mable, a senior from Aurora, Colorado is one of the most celebrated gymnasts in Big Ten history and holds a 3.83 grade point average. She is an elementary education major and will receive a ten-thousand-dollar scholarship.
Only one male and one female athlete in the Big Ten receive this award each year. This is the second straight year a Gopher women's athlete earned the honor. Minnesota swimmer Jessica Plant won the scholarship in 2015.
Mable will be recognized at the Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament in Indianapolis next week. The award is named for former Big Ten Commissioner Wayne Duke.
