Fluhrer also led a group of six Cardinal gymnasts on the parallel bars with a score of 9.825, as Minnesota won the event by a 49.225-48.875 advantage.

On balance beam, three Cardinal gymnasts finished among the top five. Beck, sophomores Lis? L?veill? (Burnaby, British Columbia) and Lindsay Wing (Cypress, Tex.) each scored a 9.825 to finish in a three-way tie for second.
