Single Meet Tickets On Sale!: Full CGA Ranking Release
The University of Minnesota men's gymnastics program will host the annual Maroon vs. Gold intrasquad meet at the Maturi Pavilion on Wednesday, Dec. 13 at 4:30 p.m. CT. It will be a first look at the Gophers before the 2018 competition season begins.
"The Maroon and Gold Meet has finally arrived and I'm excited to see how these guys do in a competition setting," head coach Mike Burns said. "The big thing we will be looking for is how they will step up and handle this first competition of the year. Most of these guys haven't competed since April so it will be a bit of a reawakening to get out there in front of judges, raise their hands and compete for that block `M' on their chest."
