ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan sophomore Adrian de los Angeles (Long Beach, Calif./Millikan) was named NCAA Gymnast of the Week by the College Gymnastics Association on Wednesday (March 27) after posting the highest all-around score in the country with an 89.70 against UIC and SUNY-Brockport on Saturday (March 23).
De los Angeles collects the honor after winning parallel bars with a career-high 15.75 and taking second on high bar (15.00). Additionally, de los Angeles was one of five Wolverines to break the 15-point barrier on still rings, chipping in a 15.30 in the all-around spot.
His 89.70 eclipsed his previous career best of 89.20, which was set against Stanford (Jan. 26). He and Stanford's Eddie Penev are the only two all-arounders in the country to surpass 89.00 this season.
The award is the third of the season for de los Angeles. He previously took home the honors on Jan. 23 and Feb. 13.
The Wolverines will return to competition April 5-6 for the Big Ten Championships in an event hosted by the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Each day of team and individual competition will commence at 7 p.m. CDT.
