Morgan Price Makes History As The First HBCU Gymnast To Win National Collegiate Title 

Morgan Price, a gymnast from Fisk University, made history by becoming the first athlete from a historically Black college or university (HBCU) to win a national collegiate championship. Competing at the USA Gymnastics' 2024 Women's Collegiate National Championships in West Chester, Pennsylvania, Price achieved a remarkable all-around score of 39.225. 

Her victory marked a significant milestone for HBCU representation in collegiate gymnastics. Price, who joined Fisk University’s inaugural intercollegiate gymnastics team in 2023 after initially signing with Arkansas, changed her path after a compelling invitation from Coach Corrine Tarver to make history. This team has since attracted considerable media attention, appearing on ESPN and consistently selling out their meets. 

Price expressed the joy of being immersed in her culture and the overwhelming support they received, which added to the excitement of their competitions. Her historic achievement was enthusiastically celebrated by her team on social media, heralding her success as a groundbreaking moment in sports history. Price is set to continue her competitive journey, participating in the Individual Event finals in vault, bars, and floor.
