STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford men’s gymnast Akash Modi was named the College Gymnastics Association National Gymnast of the Week for the fourth time this season, as announced by the organization Thursday.
The national award is the fourth of Modi’s collegiate career. He received his fourth Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Week award earlier this week.
Modi recorded four top-two finishes in four events to help Stanford post a season-best team score of 446.450. He finished first on parallel bars (15.650) and tied for second on pommel horse (15.350), vault (15.350) and high bar (15.100).
Modi’s scores on pommel horse, vault and high bar are collegiate personal bests.
Modi is ranked in the top 20 in the nation in each event and is first in the all-around with an 88.867 four-score average. His season average of 89.487 is more than 1.3 points higher than any other gymnast in the country.
Stanford will have the next two weeks off before heading to Norman, Okla., for the MPSF Championships on March 29.
