Schulte named Big Ten Freshman of the Week

Michigan State gymnast Skyla Schulte was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week, the conference announced Monday afternoon.

This is Schulte's first Freshman of the Week Award, and the first for the Spartans since Baleigh Garcia won the honor in February 2021. Schulte was also named a Big Ten Gymnast to Watch prior to the start of the 2022 season. This is the second year in a row that an MSU gymnast has been named Freshman of the Week in the conference's first week of awards distribution. 

In her debut meet with the Spartans, Schulte competed in the all-around, finishing second overall with a score of 39.125. She shared the vault title with MSU's Gabrielle Stephen, posting a score of 9.875. In addition, Schulte had the third-best score on the uneven bars with a 9.700 and placed 12th on beam.
