st: summarize, store multiple means?

Good Morning,

I would like to simply store multiple means as generated by the summarize command:

sum var1 var2 .. var100
matrix averages=r(mean)

However, only the mean of the last (var100) is stored in that matrix. Is there anyway to store all the means or do I have to loop over all variables and store each mean value seperately in the matrix column?

Ultimately, I would like to run a command like:

bys sex: sum var1 var2 .. var100

and store two set of means in two matrix columns, but I assume accessing r(mean) after that command would, again, only give me the very last mean entry.
