GAINESVILLE, Fla.  – Ohio State junior Emma Baranski claimed her first national title on Saturday, winning the solo crown in the finals of the US Collegiate Championships in Gainesville, Fla.

Baranski scored an 83.3000 to best Clare McGovern of Stanford by almost two points. She is the first Buckeye soloist to win the national title since Yuliya Maryanko won in 2012. Baranski and Monica Velazquez-Stiak would finish second in the duet earlier in the day and on the strength of that, the two shared the Individual High Point Award at the event.

The two Buckeye trios of Morgan Boneberg, Lorraine Hack and Alyssa Hoying and Baranski, Velazquez-Stiak and Elizabeth Davidson shared third place honors with a score of 81.7000. All six Buckeyes earned All-America honors as well as Wenjing Deng and Noelle St. John. The eight All-Americans were the most of any school.

The Scarlet and Gray teams also had beautiful performances on Saturday afternoon and went on to finish second and third, respectively. Behind Stanford’s victory in the team competition, the Cardinal would claim the overall national championship with 98 points. The Buckeyes finished second in the 16-team field with 92 points.

This was a cap to a very good year for the Buckeyes who finished 1st in six events, including a dominating win at the North Regional Championship last month.
