Greg Stine Claims Two USAG National Event Titles
March 25, 2007
Stine picked up USAG national titles on the floor exercise and still rings, backed by matching scores of 9.300 on each event. Including yesterday's win in the all-around, Stine becomes the first Air Force gymnast to ever win three events at a single USAG competition. The three wins today brings his career total of USAG national titles to an Academy-best five (he won the all-around and pommel horse in 2004).
In addition to his three victories, Stine collected USAG All-America honors on two other events with fourth-place finishes on the pommel horse (7.600) and high bar (8.450).
Stine was one of six Falcons to collect USAG All-America honors. As a team, the Falcons accounted for 11 USAG All-America citations, based on finishes with the top-six of each event. It is the most Falcons to earn USAG All-America honors since 2001, when seven gymnasts earned that distinction. In addition, the 11 total honors are the most ever for an Air Force squad.
