COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State women’s gymnastics senior Jenna Swartzentruber claimed second team All-Big Ten laurels, the conference announced Wednesday.

Swartzentruber is picking up All-Big Ten honors for a second time in her career after making her initial appearance on the team in 2019. This season, she has earned four event titles, three on uneven bars and one on balance beam. The Centerburg, Ohio, native has tied her career mark of 9.925 on bars twice. She paces the Buckeyes with a national qualifying score of 9.906 on bars, which ranks 21st in the country and fourth in the Big Ten.

She was also the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award recipient for the Buckeyes. The award recognizes individuals who have distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and ethical behavior. These student-athletes must also be in good academic standing and have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition setting.

Swartzentruber has appeared in all 43 meets over the last four years for Ohio State. A staple in the Buckeye lineup, she has competed on every apparatus, recording career highs of 9.900 or better on three events. She is currently one of 30 nominees for the AAI Award.
