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.
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.
