The University of Minnesota men's gymnastics team came away victorious on Sunday afternoon after squaring off against the University of Illinois-Chicago.
The 345.8-339.2 win made it 13-consecutive times that the No. 8 Gophers have beaten or finished ahead of the No. 13 Flames.
The 345.8 score narrowly beat out the Gophers score from a week ago at home, making it the highest team score the team has achieved this season.
The improved scores show the progression the Gophers were hoping to see, and being able to accomplish it on the road also shows improvement as the season begins to move into its later stages.
"I was really pleased with our hit percentage with it being the best of the season at 81.4 percent," Minnesota head coach Mike Burns said. "The guys really stepped up for us and took care of business."
The Gophers had numerous solid performances, with champions in five of the six events. Josh Wokurka competed in a couple events for the first time to fill in for injured Gophers, and had good scores across the board. Zack Chase continued to put up big numbers Minnesota as well, as he and DJ Repp each scored a 16.0 on the vault.
"Josh Wokurka did a very nice job for us and Zack Chase had a great day," Burns said. "It was also great to see Jesse Moravec compete for the first time as a Gopher. Overall, as a team I feel like we're moving in the right direction."
