March 19, 2018

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Michigan State senior Hailee Westney has been named to the All-Big Ten Second Team, as announced by the conference on Monday.

Big Ten Release

“We’re so proud of Hailee and her accomplishments not only this season, but throughout her four years as a Spartan. If there is anyone on this team that you might observe making the biggest transformation since their first year at Michigan State, it’d definitely be Hailee,” said head coach Mike Rowe. “She’s always challenged herself both athletically and academically. Her bar routine this year is stacked with some of the most difficulty in the NCAA and we could’ve stayed clean and simple, but Hailee wouldn’t compromise and maintained clean and difficult. Her beam routine is also unique with her double turn and lay out gainer dismount. We’re definitely proud of this honor for Hailee and excited that her hard work and determination has paid off for her!”

She becomes the 55th Michigan State gymnast to earn All-Big Ten accolades, as MSU has had at least one gymnast earn All-Big Ten recognition every season since 2002.

Westney has been a staple for the Spartan squad this season, competing in every meet and recording the most podium finishes for the Green and White with 12 including nine first-place finishes. The Milton, Ontario native took the bars competition seven times and garnered a first-place finish twice on beam.

The senior posted a career high on bars at the B1G Five meet, earning a 9.925 in her final home meet at Jenison Field House. She also registered a career-high 9.900 on beam on Feb. 4 against Penn State. 

MSU will head to Champaign, Illinois on Saturday, March 24 to compete in the Big Ten Championship.
The meet will be split into two portions with the Green and White competing at 12 p.m. ET.
