M. Gym: Seven Earn MPSF All-Academic Award

The Mountain Pacific Sports Federation announced seven members of the Oklahoma men's gymnastics team have been named MPSF All-Academic Scholar-Athletes.

Honorees must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, be at least a sophomore academically, completed one full academic year at the institution prior to the season and competed in fifty percent or of the season's competitions.

Dylan Akers, Danny Berardini, Presten Ellsworth, Ethan Jose, Stanton Rehkemper, Alec Robin and Michael Squires earned the award for the Sooners. All seven gymnasts were also recently honored as Academic All-Big 12 awardees.

OU placed second overall at the NCAA Championships last Friday in Ann Arbor, Mich. Robin (floor, vault) and Squires (still rings) also won individual national titles while joining Berardini (parallel bars, high bar) and three other teammates in garnering All-America honors.
