Michigan sixth at NCAA men's gymnastics finals and more Friday results
The Michigan men's gymnastics team couldn't maintain its hot start to the two-day NCAA Championships.
One day after posting the top score out of six championship-round qualifiers, the Wolverines finished in sixth place in the team standings after the finals on Friday night in Norman, Okla.
Michigan sophomore Sam Mikulak tied for second in the individual all-around competition.
Illinois rallied in its final two events to pass No. 1 Oklahoma and win its first NCAA men's gymnastics title since 1989.
Penn State was third, followed by California, Stanford and Michigan.
Led by U.S. Senior National Team members Paul Ruggeri and C.J. Maestes, Illinois posted a team score of 358.85, 1.4 points better than Oklahoma, which failed to win the national title in its home arena.
Another U.S. Senior National Team member, Oklahoma's Jake Dalton, won the individual all-around title with a score of 91. Maestes tied Mikulak for second at 89.7.
