Two Gophers earn weekly Big Ten honors

Gophers junior Judy Cavazos was named Big Ten Women’s Gymnast of the Week.
Cavazos won the all-around competition in Friday’s victory over fifth-ranked Michigan, scoring 38.900 in the all-around, and tied for first in the floor exercise with 9.80.

Another win
Minnesota junior heavyweight Brock Lesnar was named the Big Ten Wrestler of the Week, after pinning four straight opponents at the National Wrestling Duals last weekend.
Since transferring from Bismarck Junior College to join the Gophers on Jan. 4, Lesnar has jumped from ninth to second in the country, compiling a 7-1 record.
Last weekend Lesnar pinned No. 2 ranked Wes Hand of Iowa to secure a 21-14 win over the third-ranked Hawkeyes.

Headed for the Hula
Former Gophers linebacker Parc Williams, who was named the outstanding defensive player on the Blue team in the Blue and Gray game on Christmas Day, will play in the Hula Bowl in Honolulu on Saturday.
The Hula Bowl invites the nation’s top seniors to play in the all-star event, which attracts scouts from the NFL.
