It was a fairly solid first time out on the season for the Buckeyes, as they traveled to Colorado Springs, Colorado for the Rocky Mountain Open.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Senior Alec Yoder took two individual titles on Saturday night at the Cadet West Gymnasium on the parallel bars and pommel horse as the No. 6 Ohio State University men’s gymnastics team got the 2019 season underway at the Rocky Mountain Open on Saturday. The Buckeyes took fourth place with a team score of 398.500. No. 1 Oklahoma took first place with a 411.150 score.

Yoder’s 14.55 on the pommel pushed the captain past Minnesota’s Shane Wiskus, who nipped at Alec’s heels with a 14.10. On the parallel bars, Yoder tallied a 14.85 to earn the top spot.

Fifteen Buckeyes competed at the RMO, including five making their regular season debuts in the Scarlet and Gray. Ohio State got things underway on the rings with a score of 67.400 and followed that with scores of 71.150 (vault), 68.250 (parallel bars), 62.650 (high bar), 65.200 (floor) and 63.650 (pommel).

Angel Leon just missed out on a podium finish in his debut, notching a 13.75 on the rings, .15 away from third place. Max Andryuhschenko was the only Buckeye competing in the all-around on Saturday, taking sixth place with a 77.100 score.

The Buckeyes have next weekend off before heading to Norman for a clash with No. 1 Oklahoma.

Regardless of the final score, the Buckeyes knew it would be a tough one as they traveled to Norman, to take on the #1 ranked and defending national champion Oklahoma Sooners. They ultimately fell to Oklahoma, 423.95 - 395.40.

OSU's Alex Yoder notched their only event victory on the night in the pommel with a score of 14.750.

Ohio State's next competition will be next Saturday as they travel to Michigan for a dual with the Wolverines.

Alec Yoder once again dominated in his specialty, the pommel horse, scoring a 14.900, which is the second highest score in the nation this season.

It was a tough loss this weekend for the Buckeyes, as they fell to #9 Iowa on the road in Iowa City, 400.650 - 396.400. Although the Buckeyes took first place finishes in 5 events, including the top three finishers in the pommel horse, the Hawkeyes depth proved too much for OSU on the night.

Next up, Ohio State will finish up the regular season next Sunday as they host Illinois.

The national championships were a massive success for the Buckeyes, even though they didn't compete as a team, individual competition went very well! Alec Yoder claimed the national title in the pommel horse, as well as an All-American honor (6th place) in the parallel bars, it was also the 10th All-American honor in this 4 year career.

Trevor Cummings also earned an All-American honor in the pommel horse, as he finished 4th overall.
