StAAT builds support for LGBTQ and allied athletes
With often-intimate connections formed through the recruiting process and four years — or more — of training and competition, it’s rarely easy for coaches to say goodbye to graduating seniors. When you graduate five All-Americans on the heels of winning the NCAA championship, like men’s gymnastics coach Thom Gilelmi did this year, it can be overwhelming.
A select group of eight athletes from the men’s gymnastics team will head to Las Vegas this weekend for the Winter Cup Challenge, a re-ranking meet for the U.S. Men’s Senior National Team.
The No. 3 Stanford men’s gymnastics team beat No. 2 California on Saturday, 364.4 to 358.8 in front of a large Burnham Pavilion crowd. The Cardinal bounced back from last week’s loss to the Golden Bears, improving its overall score by over 15 points and easily putting up its highest team score so far this season.
