2022 NCAA men's and women's national champions to be crowned Thursday, Saturday
posted on 04/13/2022

INDIANAPOLIS, April 13, 2022 - Men's and women's team and individual NCAA champions will be crowned this weekend in Norman, Okla., and Fort Worth, Texas, respectively. In the men's competition, the Stanford Cardinal will look to secure their third-straight team title. The Michigan Wolverines hope to repeat on the women's side after earning their first title in school history in 2021.

The 2022 NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championships will kick off competition Thursday, April 14 at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, while the opening round of the NCAA Men's Gymnastics Championships will take place Friday, April 15 at the Lloyd Noble Center on the University of Oklahoma's campus. Women's individual national champions will be determined Thursday ahead of Saturday's team final. All men's national champions will be decided Saturday, April 16.

Both days of men's coverage will stream live on SoonerSports.TV. Women's action will air Thursday on ESPN2 followed by the team final Saturday on ABC.

Men's Gymnastics Championships

The host Oklahoma Sooners will look to end Stanford's team title streak, which extends back to 2019 after the 2020 championships were cancelled due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. Oklahoma topped the team standings from 2015-18 and has finished in the runner-up spot at each of the last two championships. The reigning U.S. all-around champion and 2020 Olympian, Brody Malone, has also secured the last two NCAA all-around titles for the Cardinal. Malone, now a senior, claimed the top all-around spot at the recent MPSF championships, outpacing Oklahoma's Fuzzy Benas - the top-ranked all-around gymnast in the country according to the College Gymnastics Association - by more than a point.

Six teams and multiple individual qualifiers will face off in each semifinal session with the top three teams from each session set to advance to Saturday's final. The top-three all-around competitors and top-three finishers on each apparatus who are not on one of the qualifying teams will also move on to the finals.

Women's Gymnastics Championships

For the first time in NCAA history, the reigning Olympic all-around champion will compete for a collegiate national championship. Sunisa Lee and the Auburn Tigers are set to take the floor in the second of Thursday's semifinals. Olympic team silver medalist Grace McCallum and the Utah Red Rocks have also advanced to the semifinal round and will compete in the first session. Fellow Olympic medalists Jade Carey of Oregon State and Jordan Chiles of UCLA qualified as individuals. Carey, the Olympic champion on floor exercise, will rotate with Oklahoma in the first session, while Chiles, who earned team silver alongside McCallum, will rotate with Missouri later in the day.

In 2021, the Michigan Wolverines edged the reigning champion Oklahoma Sooners to claim their first team title. Senior Anastasia Webb of Oklahoma scored the all-around title.

The 2022 championships field was determined based on performances at the Auburn, Norman, Raleigh and Seattle regionals held March 30-April 2. The top-two teams from each regional advanced to Thursday's semifinal round, as did the top all-around competitor and high scorer on each apparatus who was not already part of a qualified team. The top-two teams from each semifinal will move on to Saturday's team final, while the all-around and individual event national champions will be crowned Thursday.
