COLUMBUS, Ohio - Competing as the first Owl since 2005 to reach the individual event finals of the NCAA Championships, Temple redshirt-senior Patrick McLaughlin placed seventh on parallel bars with a score of 14.300 at Ohio State's St. John Arena on Saturday. With the finish, McLaughlin was named an All-America honoree, the first for Temple since 2004.

McLaughlin, who was awarded a fifth-year of eligibility after suffering a season-ending injury last season, made the most of his shot at the National Qualifier and NCAA Championships. The Shrewsbury, Pa., native was the first Owl since Nykia White (2005) to reach the individual event finals at the NCAA Championships, and the first to be named All-America since White and Theo Maes earned the recognition in 2004. He is also the first Owl to earn All-America honors on parallel bars since Jason Krane in 1998.
