The University of Minnesota men’s gymnastics team placed eighth in the 2013 National Academic Team Champions standings, which is presented by the College Gymnastics Association. The Gophers ended the year with a combined grade-point average of 3.115 to finish behind No. 7 Michigan (3.147) and in front of No. 9 Illinois (3.111). Stanford finished first with a 3.445 team grade-point average.
The College Gymnastics Association also honored four Gophers as 2013 First Team All-American Scholar-Athletes for attaining at least a 3.50 grade-point average. Five Minnesota gymnasts were also named Second Team All-American Scholar-Athletes for attaining a grade-point average between 3.2 and 3.499.
"The academic component of being an NCAA student-athlete is very challenging and I'm extremely proud of the effort our team had this past year in the classroom," said coach Mike Burns. "My hat goes off to the staff at the McNamara Academic Center for the attention to detail they put in with all the student-athletes here at the University of Minnesota and especially with our team.
"It's nice to see how the guys on our team take their academic responsibilities seriously with the knowledge that they will be going pro in something besides gymnastics. The education they receive here at Minnesota will serve them all very well."
