NEWPORT NEWS, Va. --- Stanford is in a tie with Ohio State heading into the Championship Finals tomorrow at the US Collegiate Championships. Stanford captured the title in 1998 and 1999, while Ohio State upended the Cardinal for last year's title.

Ohio State set the high mark of the day during the seventh routine of the day, but Stanford's "Noah's Ark" routine tied the Buckeye's 97.267 mark. Stanford could win the overall victory with a first place finish in the team competition tomorrow.

Stanford had 10 competitors in the "A" Figure Competition today, four of whom finished in the top-eight. Erin Dobratz is in third place, Katie Norris is in fourth, Shannon Montague captured sixth place and Lindsey Wigginton rounds out the top-finishers in eighth place.

The three-day event concludes on Saturday with the finals of all four events. The trio finals begin at 7:20 a.m. (PT), followed by the duet finals at 8:20 a.m. (PT), solo finals at 10:00 a.m. (PT) and team finals at 11:00 a.m. (PT).
