UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (AP) — Freshman Fred Richard of Michigan won three individual crowns — including the all-around — and Stanford’s Asher Hong and Taylor Burkhart went 1-2 in the vault to help the Cardinal win their fourth consecutive title at the NCAA gymnastics championships. Stanford won its ninth national title with 422.458 points, 2.569 ahead of Richard and the second-place Wolverines. Illinois was third, followed by Oklahoma, Nebraska and Penn State. Richard beat out fellow-Wolverine Virgil Watkins and win the parallel bars and his 14.433 on the high bar edged second-place Donte McKinney of Nebraska by 0.067. Stanford’s Nick Kuebler and Richard each scored a 14.800, but Kuebler won the tiebreaker to capture the floor title — the sophomore’s first individual championship.
