STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford men’s gymnast Akash Modi was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Week for his standout performance in the Cardinal’s season-opening victory at California, as announced by the conference Tuesday.
Modi earned three individual titles in his collegiate debut, finishing first in the all-around (88.150), floor (15.350) and parallel bars (15.250). He also contributed big scores on vault (15.000), rings (14.650) and pommel horse (14.250).
The Morganville, N.J. native helped lead Stanford to a 431.100-425.650 victory at No. 7 California. The Cardinal outscored the Golden Bears in four of six events. It was Stanford’s eighth consecutive victory over Cal dating back to the 2013 season-opener, also in Berkeley.
Stanford will see Cal again this weekend in its own home-opener on Saturday at 4 p.m. in Burnham Pavilion.
