MINNEAPOLIS – The 11th-ranked University of Minnesota women’s gymnastics team remained one of just three undefeated teams nationally, as it improved to 12-0 by winning its annual Best of Minnesota/Always Dreaming Invitational at the Sports Pavilion on Saturday evening.

Minnesota (12-0, 4-0 Big Ten) finished with a team total of 196.000 points to outdistance the state of Minnesota’s three other women’s gymnastics programs – Winona State (184.975), Hamline (184.675) and Gustavus Adolphus (177.450)

With the victory, the Golden Gophers remained one of three undefeated teams, along with No. 2 Oklahoma and No. 4 UCLA.

On uneven bars, Minnesota was led by senior Janell Campbell’s 9.875, while junior Dusti Russell made her 2013 debut with a 9.775. Covers and freshman Madie Hanley each also had 9.775, as Minnesota scored a team total of 48.450 and led by four full points with a 97.625 after the second rotation.
