Three Bears Set Personal Records

Mar 5, 2022


STANFORD – California men's gymnastics returned to Stanford on Saturday evening for a rematch with both the No. 1 Cardinal and the Air Force Falcons, the latter of whom they faced in their stunning 401.150 finish two weeks ago. The Bears ended the night with 390.500 points – a respectable number, albeit not as high as their previous score – while Stanford had 419.000 and Air Force finished with 380.600.

"When you come off of a big meet, it can be difficult to repeat those same results the next time out," said head coach J.T. Okada. "I'm not disappointed, though – I think this was a good test and another step for us on the journey to Nationals. It was less than we're capable of, but we didn't have any disasters, which is what's most important."

Sophomore Collin Cunane led the Bears in two events: the floor exercise (13.650) and the horizontal bar (12.800), the former of which was a personal record. He was joined as a personal record-setter by junior Noah Sano, whose 13.700 on the pommel horse ranked fourth overall in the contest, and freshman Landon Wu, who smashed his old record on the parallel bars with a total of 14.050 points. Senior Yu-Chen Lee competed in five of six events and remained consistent throughout, leading the team with his vault score of 13.950.

As a team, Cal's best events were the vault (68.050) and the floor exercise (66.150), followed by the parallel bars (65.550) and the still rings (64.750).
The Bears return to Haas Pavilion on Saturday, March 12, when they host No. 1 Stanford at 2:00 p.m. PT.
