Rebeca of Plano, Texas won her first U.S. gymnastics all-around title Saturday night, edging Mattie Larson by 3.3 points for first place. Bros had a total score of 120.3 for the four exercises - the vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor. She was first on the bars and beam and finished behind Larson on the floor.

"I felt really good," said Bros. "I made all of my routines and I did what I hoped to do. [Winning the Visa Championships] was always a big goal for me and I'm just happy to be able to do it now."

Alicia Sacrament, a 2008 Olympic team silver medalist, became the first U.S. woman to win five national vault titles. She topped Vanessa Marrissa and Brandie Jay. Jonathan Horton was crowned U.S. men's gymnastics champion for a second straight year, beating Danell Leyva by 2.3 points Friday night.
