The Minnesota men's gymnastics team stayed at No. 6 in the latest Gyminfo National Rankings released on Monday after topping Nebraska and UIC over the weekend.

The Gophers, who scored a season-high 431.200 in dismissing the Cornhuskers and Flames, are behind top-ranked Penn State, Michigan, Oklahoma, Stanford and Ohio State.

Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska and California round out the top 10 nationally.

In specific events, the Gophers are ranked second on high bar (71.283), third on floor exercise (73.633), third on vault (73.533), sixth on parallel bars (70.350), seventh on still rings (72.183) and ninth on pommel horse (68.200).

Individually, Steve Jaciuk is the lone Gopher ranked in the top 10 in an event. Jaciuk is tied for seventh in the nation on high bar with a 14.617 average. He recorded a career-high score of 15.300 last Saturday.

This week, Ellis Mannon, Zack Chase and Daniel DiBenedetto will compete in the Winter Cup in Las Vegas on Feb. 7 and 9. The rest of the Gophers will travel to Iowa and face the Hawkeyes at 7 p.m. on Feb. 8.
