OSU's Gardiner wins gymnastics award



Oregon State junior Madline Gardiner is the Pac-12 women’s gymnast of the week.

From Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, Gardiner led the 17th-ranked Beavers over No. 14 California with her season high of 39.475 in the all-around. She tied her all-time best on the balance beam (9.925) and scored a season high on floor exercise (9.900), winning on the floor and in the all-around at Corvallis on Saturday.


Former Oregon State wrestler Les Gutches and the late coach Dale Thomas earned top honors in a Pac-12 retrospective.

Thomas was named conference Coach of the Century. Gutches, a two-time NCAA champion, Olympian and National Wrestling Hall of Famer, was chosen as the co-Pac-12 Wrestler of the Century.

The 28-member All-Century team has two wrestlers in each weight class and eight wildcard picks, all voted on by a 20-member panel of coaches, wrestlers, administrators and media.

OSU and Arizona State had the most selections, with nine apiece.
