Fisk University Gymnastics is again making history.

On Saturday (April 13), Fisk University Gymnastics member Morgan Price made history as the first HBCU gymnast to win a national collegiate title, per CBS News.

Price competed at the USA Gymnastics Women's Collegiate National Championship. With a score of 39.225, the HBCU gymnast was crowned USAG's All-Around National Champion.

The Fisk University Gymnastics team made history last year as the first HBCU to compete in NCAA women's gymnastics. The team was among 12 others that competed in Saturday's USAG championship in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

Fisk University celebrated Price's historic win, saying "The Price is Right" in a social media post.

"Etch her name in the HISTORY BOOKS, Morgan Price is the 2024 USAG All-Around National Champion! Making her the FIRST HBCU GYMNAST IN HISTORY TO HOLD THE TITLE," wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

Price, a sophomore student from Lebanon, joined the team in 2023 after initially signing with Arkansas. According to ESPN, Price made the switch after Fisk gymnastics coach Corrine Tarver asked her: "Do you want to make history?"

The sophomore is set to compete again on Sunday (April 14) on vault, bars, and floor in the Individual Event Finals.
