NORMAL, Ill. - Illinois State sophomore gymnast Amanda Mohler was named Midwest Independent Conference (MIC) Specialist of the Week by the conference office this Tuesday for her performances on the balance beam and uneven bars competitions at a dual-meet against Illinois-Chicago.

Mohler tied her career-best score of 9.850 to win the balance beam competition. Additionally, she contributed a 9.825 to a team season- high on the uneven bars. While this is Mohler's first MIC Specialist of the Week honor, she is the second Redbird to be honored by the conference this season. Junior Sami King was named MIC Specialist of the Week and Gymnast of the Week earlier this season. Joining Mohler as weekly honoree was Catherine Dion, of UIC, who was named MIC Gymnast of the week for her all-around performance against ISU.

Mohler and her teammates return to action this Saturday at the MIC Championships in Normal, Ill. at 4:00 p.m. inside Redbird Arena.
