COLUMBUS, Ohio – Sarah Miller, a junior on the No. 18 Ohio State women’s gymnastics team, has been named Big Ten Event Specialist of the Week, the conference office announced Monday. The award marks the 13th Big Ten weekly honor of her career and fifth of the season for the Collegeville, Pa., native.

Miller either won or tied for the event title in all three events she competed in as the Buckeyes posted a season-best 196.300 in a dual meet win over Illinois Saturday. She tied a career best 9.950 to take the vault title, tallied a 9.925 to win beam and tied for first with a 9.875 on floor exercise.

Up next, the Buckeyes hit the road to take on Illinois State at 5 p.m. Saturday.
