Senior Nash Mills claimed a share of two event titles and won the all-around outright, as the Air Force men's gymnastics team won its first All-Academy Championship title since 2000 on Sunday, Feb. 20. Mills was one of four Falcons to collect first-place honors, as the Falcons recorded the second-highest team score in program history (345.000) to easily defeat its service academy counterparts. Mills equaled his career high on the still rings, as he tied with junior Devin Menefee for first with a score of 14.800.
The native of Coto de Caza, Calif., also tied for first on the parallel bars with freshman Colton Wulf, behind a season-best score of 14.300. With a third-place score on the vault (15.600) and a fourth-place tie on the high bar (13.800), Mills collected a season-high combined score of 85.800 to place first in the all-around. Mills also collected a pair of top-three finishes at the Minnesota dual meet on Feb. 18, en route to an all-around total of 81.700. Mills tied for second on the high bar with a score of 13.800, while tying for third on the still rings with a mark of 14.300.
The Falcons return to action on Friday, March 4, when they travel to Chicago, Ill., for the first of two quad meets at Illinois-Chicago.
