Tuesday, January 25, 2011 | 8:55 p.m. CST

MU gymnast Mary Burke earned the Big 12 Conference's Gymnast of the Week award for the second consecutive week.

The junior from Inverness, Ill., joins Adrianne Perry and Sarah Shire as the only gymnasts in MU history to win the award three or more times.

Burke secured this week's award by receiving a 39.200 all-around score against No. 20 Iowa State over the weekend, the third all-around victory of her career.

This weekend, the gymnastics team will head to Dallas to take on LSU, Alabama and Big 12 foe Nebraska in the Metroplex Challenge.
