For the third weekend in a row, Stanford’s gymnastics teams split one win and one loss between the men’s and women’s squads — except this time, the winners and losers swapped roles
The Stanford men’s and women’s gymnastics teams both took to the mats this weekend, with the men at home, squaring off against rival California and the Japanese Collegiate All-Stars, and the women in Texas, facing Brown and the University of Bridgeport.
Coming off a victory in the NorCal Quad Meet, the Stanford women’s gymnastics team continued its success by beating the Washington Huskies in its second meet of the season. However, unlike last week, this victory was not so comfortable
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.
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.
