On floor, Sam scores a 15.125 and takes 4th place, just edging out teammate Stacey Ervin, who scores a 15.1 and takes 5th place. Both gymnasts earn All-American honors on the floor exercise.
On horse, Sam scores a 13.250 after nearly falling off the horse. Sam places last (10th), and will not earn All-American honors on the pommel horse. Having not won either floor or horse, Sam is yet to tie Jim Hartung and Joe Giallombardo for the most ever national titles. But he still has two more chances, as he will compete on vault and parallel bars in the second half of tonight’s event finals.
