BERKELEY - Glen Ishino the reigning national and Mountain Pacific Sports Federation gymnast of the week, further established his dominance with a 90.900 all-around win, in the No. 9 California men's gymnastics team's final home meet of the 2010 campaign - a 354.650-344.300 upset win over No. 6 Penn State on Saturday afternoon. Ishino tied for first on parallel bars and took home the titles on vault and pommel horse, making the sophomore all-around the Muscle Milk California Student-Athlete of the Week.
On floor, Ishino was Cal's top finisher with a 15.250, a new season high, for second place. Ishino's event-winning 15.450 on pommel horse was not only yards above the other competitors - second place was a 14.800 by PSU's Felix Aronovich - but also good enough for a new season and career high. Ishino's previous best on horse in 2010 was a 15.200 and his career high was 15.400. Thanks to Ishino's score, Cal hit a 2010 high on horse with a 58.200, above its previous season best of 56.950 and just short of its all-time best of 58.250.
Ishino soared to a first-place finish on vault with his 15.850 to push the Bears to a 62.450-61.850 win on the event. On high bar, Ishino tied for first, scoring a 14.950, helping Cal set a new 2010 best with its 59.400 on h-bar, above its previous high of 58.100.
