The Stanford men’s gymnastics program got a little stronger with the addition of two future Cardinal performers, who committed to join the team for the 2017-18 academic year.
Stanford welcomes Trevor DiGerolamo and Thomas Lee this fall to The Farm.
“Trevor is a tremendous addition to the team,” said Cardinal coach Thom Glielmi. “He has natural strength, and with consistent training I believe he will emerge as a top ringman. He is also solid on floor exercise and vault, two events we need depth on.”
Lee hails from nearby Aragon High in San Mateo. He’s been training with the Stanford club team.
“We are enthused to have Thomas join the Stanford men’s gymnastics family,” Glielmi said. “He has made tremendous progress in the last three years, and although he was out this past season with an injury, he took advantage of that time to get stronger on rings. He will likely make the ring line-up as a freshman, and challenge on parallel bars and pommel horse.”
The two will join a Stanford team coming off its 12th consecutive season in which it advanced to the NCAA finals, placing fourth overall.

Stanford junior Marisa Kwiatkowski recorded a 41-7 1/4 triple jump during the NCAA West Preliminaries over the weekend in Austin, Texas. While that wasn’t enough to qualify her for the finals, it was good enough to set the national Filipino record.
The Fil-Heritage jumper is scheduled to make her Philippines debut athe World University Games in Taipei in August.
Thirteen Cardinal received Academic All-Pac-12 honors on Tuesday. Junior Andrew Summerville was a first team selection for the second straight year, while junior Quinn Brodey, senior Tyler Thorne and junior Matt Winaker earned second team honors.
Nine others – Kris Bubic, Chris Castellanos, Mikey Diekroeger, Colton Hock, Nico Hoerner, Duke Kinamon, Jack Klein, Keith Weisenberg and Alec Wilson – were named honorable mention.
