Men's Champions Crowned for 2011

Stanford won the 2011 Men's NCAA team title.  Congratulations to all of the 2011 Champions.  Here's the full recap on the winners.

Women's Event Champions Crowned

On Vault, Marissa King stuck her Tsukahara Layout 1 1/2 twist to secure the win.  Her second vault of a layout Tsuk full had a small hop.  OU's Madison Mooring used a Yurchenko Layout 1/2 and a Yurchenko Layout Full to take second.  Erin Davis of NU landed a Yurchenko Layout 1 1/2 but stepped to the side.  She followed that up with a big Layout Yurchenko full.  Only four event finalists attempted two 10.0 start value vaults.

On UB, Kat Ding of Georgia went early and hit her dismount for the win.  Despite what she described as perhaps not her top effort of the year, the consistent Ding nailed her set when it mattered.  Oregon State's Jen Kesler was 2nd.  A trio of athletes tied in third:  Sarah Demeo of Bama, Makayla Stambaugh of Oregon State, and Monique DeLaTorre of UCLA.  Just the smallest of hops separated the top placers, while some favorites took steps on their dismount, and only one fell.

Sam Peszek of UCLA used the event finals as a chance to throw a standing full twisting back tuck into her set.  Her set was packed with difficulty and she was rewarded accordingly.  Bama's Kayla Hoffman and UCLA's Aisha Gerber tied for 2nd.  There were no falls in the final, and just small details separated the top finalists, with exception of Peszek's finals-worthy upgrade.

Geralen Stack-Eaton, who was one bobble away from the AA title, won the individual National title on FX to cap off a great weekend for the Bama faithful.  She hit her double Arabian mount and a double pike dismount to close.  Florida's Maranda Smith tied with Michigan's Kylee Botterman and UCLA's Brittani McCullough for 2nd.  Smith and Botterman both opened with pike full-ins, while McCullough did hers in tuck.  Super high tumbling was evidenced in the finals, with only two finalists not throwing FIG E skills (but both did Ds in combination).  Landing control and dance execution separated the finalists.
