KENT, Ohio – Marie Case, a sophomore on the Kent State gymnastics team, was named the Mid-American Conference's gymnast of the week, the league office announced Monday (March 5). Case's honor is her second of the season and fourth of her career.
Facing No. 14 Ohio State on the road, Case led the Golden Flashes to a team season-high in scoring with her all-around victory March 2 against the Buckeyes.
