Gophers are Back for More
Jan. 10, 2017

Last season, Minnesota men’s gymnastics placed sixth in the country, the program’s highest finish in nine years. With 18 of 20 men returning for 2017, the team returns on the same page and with the same vision.

“We had an impressive season last year,” junior captain Joel Gagnon said. “Obviously, we don’t want to end it there. That’s where our team motto developed from, we want to keep pushing for more and we are #BackForMore.”

Gagnon also shared team goals for the season: win the Big Ten title, a feat that hasn’t been accomplished since 1995, and improve upon the team’s finish at the 2017 NCAA Championships.

With the Gophers ranked No. 4 in the preseason coaches poll by the College Gymnastics Association (CGA), and No. 2 in the Big Ten Conference, Minnesota is primed for a big showing in April.

Minnesota will begin its 2017 campaign as they take on Ohio State, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan and host UIC at the 47th annual Windy City Invitational this Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
