Briefs: Mikulak retains crown

Corona del Mar High product Sam Mikulak won his second consecutive men's all-around title at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships, completed Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Mikulak finished with 180.65 points, edging first-day leader John Orozco (180.2).

Mikulak's 2012 Olympic teammate, Jake Dalton, was third with 179.85 points.

Dalton led going into the final rotation. But Mikulak, a 21-year-old who won the NCAA team and all-around titles in April as a University of Michigan senior, rallied to win by recording a score of 14.95 on his final event, the vault.

Mikulak was in fourth place after the first day of the two-day event. In Sunday's final round, he scored a 15.45 on the parallel bars to win that event.

He then scored a 15.65 in the floor exercise and a 15.45 on the pommel horse to move to second place. He posted 14.95 on still rings.

Mikulak, who grew up in Newport Coast and is a three-time NCAA individual all-around champion, will now prepare for the world championships, Oct. 3-13 in Nanning, China.

LA JOLLA — Don DuBois. a member of Big Canyon Country Club in Newport Beach, shot one-over-par 73 on Monday to qualify for the 60th annual United States Golf Assn. Senior Amateur Championship, scheduled Sept. 13-18 at Big Canyon.

DuBois was one of five to advance.

"It's a great feeling," DuBois told the Southern California Golf Assn. website. "It was a little stressful [on Monday], the course played tough, but it'll be a lot of fun to play in a USGA event on my home course."

Big Canyon members Steve Collins, James Held, Mike Moorhead, Jim Morris, Gary Singer and Todd Palmaer failed to qualify at the sectional.
