The second session of NCAA prelims is complete and more gymnasts have qualified to the event finals that will take place on Sunday starting at 4pm ET. As with the first session, the top-4 gymnasts on each event including ties from each session qualified to finals and earned first-team All-American honors. Gymnasts placing fifth through eighth will earn second-team All-American honors.
In all, there will be a whopping 24 gymnasts competing in the vault final! But with the new rule that gymnasts only have to do one vault in competition coming into effect, this final shouldn’t take nearly as long as it once would have.
The all around champion was also decided after all competition had ended. Florida’s Bridget Sloan came out victorious after her 39.6 held up through the second session. LSU’s Rheagan Courville finished second and there was a four-way tie for third. 2012 champ Kytra Hunter finished seventh in the all around standings.
