Apr 16, 2021

FORT WORTH, Texas – Hannah Scharf earned Second Team All-America status on bars after she and Cairo Leonard-Baker competed as individuals at the 2021 NCAA Gymnastics Championships on Friday, representing Sun Devil Gymnastics.

"Cairo and Hannah did a phenomenal job today," Arizona State Head Coach Jay Santos said. "They hit their routines confidently as they have done all season and we couldn't be more proud of their performances. It was the perfect way to cap off the 2021 season."
Making her debut on the biggest stage in college gymnastics, sophomore Hannah Scharf got her second All-America nod of the season. On bars, she scored a 9.8875 to tie for seventh and earned Second Team All-America status. This is two nationals in a row with a Gym Devil finishing in the top eight to become an All-American on an event, with Leonard-Baker getting second team on bars as well in 2019.  

Scharf scored a 39.4125 in the all-around, good for 11th place. She scored above a 9.800 in all four events: 9.8375 on vault, 9.8875 on bars, 9.8250 on beam and 9.8625 on floor. She placed in the top 20 in every event.
In her final postseason, Leonard-Baker qualified as an individual on the uneven bars. She scored a 9.8625 to tie for 13th place. She has scored a 9.850 or better in the last eight meets. In her three nationals appearances, she has scored above a 9.800 on bars each time.
