Academic Three-Peat

Aug 26, 2021

STANFORD, Calif. - Having already secured back-to-back national titles with a victory on April 17 from Maturi Pavilion in Minneapolis, Stanford men's gymnastics has added a third consecutive College Gymnastics Association's national academic team championship. The academic team title is the ninth for the Cardinal since the inception of the team award in 1991. Stanford managed a 3.846 team GPA to capture the top honor.

This year marks just the fourth time in history that a program has garnered both the national title and academic title – with Stanford managing the feat three times (2009, 2019, 2021). Michigan also took both ends of the championship in 2010.

Rounding out the top five are Michigan, Minnesota, William & Mary and California. The top 10 team GPAs are as follows: 

  1. Stanford — 3.846
  2. Michigan — 3.681

  3. Minnesota — 3.638

  4. William & Mary — 3.607
  5. California — 3.474

  6. Springfield — 3.425

  7. Penn State — 3.338

  8. Illinois — 3.317

  9. Ohio State — 3.248
  10. Nebraska — 3.221
