Only one of his matches needed more than two sets to decide a victor. In doubles play, he teamed up with Frederic Cadieux to post a 2-1 record in the three matches. Formont secured three points and helped attain two others as the Huskies outscored opponents 20-1 on Friday and Saturday. Week's Achievements: The only Huskie gymnast to compete in more than two events in NIU’s 192.450-191.600 victory over Western Michigan, senior Kim Gotlund won the all-around competition for the second straight week while providing a calm presence to a young NIU team that improved to 2-0 versus MAC competition with the win. Gotlund posted an all-around total of 38.550 while earning her season-best scores in two events. Her 9.625 on vault and 9.775 on floor exercise both marked her best marks of the year on those events. The 9.775 on floor tied for first in the meet. She also tied for third place on uneven parallel bars with a 9.675.
