Until 1969, men's trampoline was one of the events that comprised the NCAA gymnastics championships. At that time, the event was removed in order to conform to the international gymnastics itinerary. The NCAA continued to bestow a national title in trampoline for two years.

And Michigan won that championship in both years it was competed/awarded.

definitely has a chance to repeat. Chris Cameron is one of the best gymnasts in the entire country (not just the NCAA), and Mikulak won the junior division at last years nationals. Along with the returning nucleus, they definitely should remain on top, barring any injuries.

On the women's side, this is an extremely young team, but they are still loaded with talent on top. Filling out the vault, beam, maybe bars rotations will be key to making it back to NCAAs.

Soony Saad scored a goal in the US U-20 Mens national team's friendly against Canada today.

Receiving a pass from the left wing, Saad turned his defender before rifling home a shot that sailed over Canadian goalkeeper Roberto Stillo and into the sidenetting at the far post to make the game 1-0.
