Last Time Out
The Gophers came storming back with three straight 9.900s on floor to knock off No. 13 Arizona State 196.675-196.525 on Senior Night.

The Gophers won in front of a Minnesota women’s gymnastics record breaking home crowd of 3,112 fans. The 196.675 is a season high team score. Eight Gophers set or tied career highs in the win.
The Gophers took home titles on every event and Lexy Ramler won her sixth all-around title of the season with a 39.375. Ramler won vault with a 9.850 and beam with a 9.950. Ivy Lu won bars with a 9.950. Ramler, Ciara Gardner and Paige Williams all posted 9.900s on floor to tie for first.

Gopher Tidbits
The Gophers have an RQS of 196.010 with a season high of 196.675. That season high came despite losing Ona Loper to injury, the team’s top score on vault and floor going into last weekend.

The Gophers are ranked No. 23 on beam with a 49.010 RQS. They hit their top score on the event last time out with a 49.225. They are ranked No. 25 on bars with a 49.010 RQS.

Lu is the top ranked Gopher on any event. She is No. 3 on bars with a 9.400 RQS. Earlier this season Lu became just the third Gopher to ever score a 9.975 on bars and the second to ever post a perfect 10.000 on beam.

Ramler is No. 4 on beam with a 9.920 RQS. She is also No. 17 on all-around with a 39.405 RQS. She has won six all-around titles this season. She has won four Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors and three B1G Gymnast of the Week plaudits this season.


Cali Bound
At the beginning of the season head coach Jenny Hansen said this weekend was important when making the schedule to get senior Hannah Hitchcock, San Ramon, Calif., a chance to compete in her home state. Hitchcock has been a consistent presence all season long on vault and bars. She has hit career highs of 9.850 on vault and 9.925 on bars.

#LoveTheBattle
This season's theme is love the battle. The Gophers want fans to see the year-round work that goes into gymnastics. We have shared and will continue to look at those stories throughout the season.
