The participants for all regional sites will be announced Wednesday evening on the Golf Channel.
Along with the national title, Stanford also brought home numerous individual honors. Thom Glielmi was named the National Coach of the Year, his second such honor and his first since 2009.
Stanford assistants Syque Caesar and Karl Ziehn were also named College Gymnastics Association's National Assistant Coaches of the Year.
Much of Stanford's success was the result of CGA's Rookie of the Year Brody Malone, who earned that distinction on the eve of the championships and then went out and showed why he deserved it.
Glielmi made a shrewd decison in resting Malone, who was named the CGA's National Player of the Week for his effort in Illinois, during Friday's NCAA semifinals. He allowed the freshman to compete in a couple of events before letting him go for Saturday's championship round. Stanford finished second to Michigan in the qualifier and only needed to finish among the top three to advance.
Malone, also named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Year, saved his best performance of the year for the final day, winning the all-around championship with a career-best 85.832. He also claimed the national title on floor with a career-high 14.800 and on high bar, scoring 14.633.
He became the first Cardinal to win three titles in one season. He also became only the third freshman to win the NCAA all-around title, joining Sam Mikulak (2011) and Yul Moldauer (2016).
Stanford has produced several world-class gymnasts over the years but none made an immediate impact like Malone, who can rewrite program history.
Also earning All-American honors on parallel bars (14.100) and rings (14.266), Malone matched Jair Lynch, Dan Gill and Akash Modi as the only Stanford gymnasts to earn five All-American honors at one meet.
"Brody was just solid and an anchor, really," Glielmi said. "The best show of his competitiveness was high bar when the athlete before him missed. It is really important that the next guy nails his routine, and he did that in spades. He has one of the hardest routines in the nation and he nailed it. That totally shifted the way that event ended up."
Modi, the most decorated Cardinal gymnast in program history and one of the most decorated gymnasts in NCAA history. He won five NCAA championships, claimed a program-best 17 All-American honors and was named the CGA Gymnast of the Week a NCAA-record 17 times.
Malone is clearly headed in the right direction.
Stanford recorded 15 All-American honors, matching the program record set in 2008. Senior Grant Breckenridge joined Malone as an All-American in the all-around, finishing with a score of 81.464 to place eighth. Andrew Bitner and Ian Gunther also earned All-American honors on rings, while Blake Sun (14.166) and Jacob Barrus (13.800) were named All-Americans on parallel bars.
The Cardinal dominated the high bar. Malone was followed by Breckenridge (season-high 14.200) as the runner-up and David Jessen (13.933) in fourth to all capture All-American honors.
Bailey Perez (2nd, 14.766) and Bryan Perla (5th, 14.466). Perla also nabbed All-American honors on vault after taking second with a career-best score of 14.933 to guide Stanford to a season-high 72.632.
"We have some good depth, which showed up tonight," Glielmi mentioned. "We tell the guys that we have a great team, and because of that, there may be gymnasts who could be All-Americans who won't be in the lineup because it's so competitive. That was reflected tonight as Ryan Sheppard was ill and we had to replace him in a few events -- one of which was rings where Bitner took his spot and ended up being an All-American."
There's depth on the Stanford men's golf team too.
Trailing Cal by four strokes starting the fourth and final round, the Cardinal surged in front early on the front nine and never relinquished the lead. Stanford closed with a 4-over-par 359 in tough conditions to conclude at 7-under 1,413. UCLA earned second at 1,420 and Cal was third at 1,421.
"I think the wind surprised everyone today, but we did a good job all week keeping the big numbers off the card," Stanford coach Conrad Ray said. "We had a couple but dodged the bullet and made the birdie putts when it mattered."
Senior Isaiah Salinda closed with an even-par 71 and placed fifth at 3-under 281, while senior Brandon Wu (73) and freshman Daulet Tulebayev (72) tied for seventh at 1-under 283. Junior David Snyder (71) finished at even-par 284 to secure a share of 10th. Sophomore Nate Menon (73) tied for 23rd at 6-over 290 and junior Henry Shimp (75) tied for 37th at 10-over 294.
Wednesday's five counting players recorded 10 birdies during the last seven holes. Tuleubayev reeled off three in a row and Snyder finished birdie-birdie. Salinda and Wu birdied No. 17 and Menon birdied two of his last six.
"Everyone contributed in a good way," Ray said. "I was happy for the guys to pull it out."
Salinda (51) and Snyder (50) finished first and second in the field in pars made, while Tuleubayev ranked first in par-5 scoring (4.33) and led the Cardinal with 16 birdies.
