The Gophers dropped a 422.750 - 419.450 decision at Iowa this afternoon.

Minnesota scored higher than Iowa on the floor exercise and the vault and had the highest individual score on the floor exercise (Matt Frey at 15.100), vault (Adam Kern at 15.300) and high bar (Steve Jaciuk at 14.150).

A couple of Gophers are battling the flu and Minnesota just could not find any momentum against the Hawkeyes. The Maroon and Gold notched only a 78.4 hit percentage and coach Mike Burns said he counted four missed sets. Minnesota did stick 10 dismounts.

Josh Wokurka was the lone Gopher to compete in the all-around competition, placing second with a 82.900 total. Iowa's Javier Balboa was first at 85.950.

Minnesota competed in the meet without Ellis MannonZack Chase and Daniel DiBenedetto, who are all in Las Vegas at the Winter Cup.

Minnesota returns to action on Feb. 16 at Oklahoma.
