Sloan Captures Second NCAA All-Around Title
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Florida senior Bridget Sloan captured the NCAA all-around crown in Fort Worth, Texas, Friday, having also won the title as a freshman in 2013. Competing in the first preliminary session in the afternoon, she scored 9.90 on her first two events, floor exercise and vault. She improved to 9.950 on her remaining events, uneven bars and balance beam, to finish with a total of 39.70.

Sloan's two titles matched the accomplishment of former Gator gymnast Kytra Hunter, who as a freshman was Florida's first NCAA all-around champion. As a senior, Hunter tied UCLA's Samantha Peszek for the title last year.

Oklahoma junior Chayse Capps of nearby Plano, Texas, placed second to Sloan with 39.6125. She posted three scores of 9.90 and a 9.9125 on balance beam.

Third was LSU sophomore Myia Hambrick with 39.5625.

Apparatus titles were awarded on Friday, as well, with 9.950 as the top score on all four events.

Tying for first on vault were Brandie Jay (Georgia) and Katie Bailey (Alabama); Sloan and Brittany Rogers (Georgia) shared the uneven bars title; Sloan and Danusia Francis (UCLA) tied for the beam title; and Nina McGee (Denver) won floor exercise.

The women's NCAA Championship concludes with the Super Six Finals, April 16, at 8:00 p.m. at the Fort Worth (Texas) Convention Center Arena.
