Carly Janiga finished third in the all-around – the highest all-around finish in Stanford women’s gymnastics history – to lead the Cardinal into the NCAA Super Six finals on Thursday.

Janiga earned three first-team All-American honors at the NCAA team preliminaries at the University of Florida’s O’Connell Center and joined fellow seniors Stephanie Carter, Allyse Ishino, Blair Ryland, and Tenaya West in the only Stanford class to have advanced to the Super Six three times.

Stanford finished with a strong balance beam routine, but had a bye during the sixth and final rotation and had to wait out the conclusion to a tense meet in the locker room before finding out if it had reached the fifth Super Six in Stanford history.

Stanford scored 196.300 points, far from its best score, but the Cardinal received many clutch efforts to put it in position to advance.

Among them:

Janiga advanced to the Individual Event Finals in the vault, bars and beam. She tied for first in the session with bars score of 9.90 and had three other 9.875s to finish with an all-around score of 39.525.

She will finish her career with nine All-America honors, tying her with current volunteer assistant coach Lindsay Wing as the third-most decorated gymnast ever at Stanford. Her five first-team All-America honors tie her with Wing and Natalie Foley as the second-highest in that category in Cardinal history.

More details and coaches’ comments will be posted shortly.
