Gymnastics Squads Drop Road Dual Meets Against Stanford, Washington

A week after Glen Ishino led the Cal men's gymnastics team to an upset of then-No. 1 Stanford, he tied sophomore teammate Dennis Mannhart as all-around champions in Saturday's rematch at the Cardinal's Burnham Pavilion.

It wasn't enough for the Bears.

Stanford (1-1) jumped out ahead by taking the top four spots on the floor, its first event of the night. The Cardinal also landed the top three pommel horse leaders, along with a team victory in the rings.

Cal (1-1) edged its cross-bay rival on the vault, 63.000-62.900, and mustered a high bar win as well. Unfortunately for the Bears, Stanford eked out a 60.100-59.900 win on parallel bars, with two Cardinals tying Mannhart for first.

The Cal women's team dropped a dual meet to Washington, 195.475-190.128 in Seattle. Madisyn O'Brien was the Bears' top all-around scorer at 38.650, while the Huskies' Aliza Vaccher took the victory with 38.925.

Bears Sweep Pair of Meets in Arizona

Caitlin Leverenz was likely happy to be visiting her home state. Arizona State and Arizona were probably a little less elated.

The Tucson, Ariz., native captured three individual events against the unranked Sun Devils on Friday and four total events against the No. 7 Wildcats a day later.

Cal (4-1, 2-0 in the Pac-10), ranked No. 4, defeated Arizona State and Arizona 182-117 and 165.5-134.5, respectively.
