Gophers Perform Well at First Simulation Meet

Dec. 3, 2012

The University of Minnesota women's gymnastics team is beginning to narrow its focus on the start of its 2013 season, as the Gophers held the first of two meet simulations on Monday afternoon at Peik Gym.

Head coach Meg Stephenson is happy with the progress her team has made during its fall workouts, and thinks the Golden Gophers are right where they need to be with just over one month to the start of the season.

The team divided into two groups, with 11 members taking part in this afternoon's simulation. Stephenson and associate head coach Jenny Hansen served as judges, and the athletes performed their full routines for scores.

The simulation was open to the public, and a group of about 30 showed up to get a look at the 2013 Gophers. Minnesota's next simulation meet on Monday, Dec. 10, is also open to those who'd like to see the Gophers before they depart for Winter Break. The second simulation will also begin at around 2:45 p.m. in Peik Gym.

Following the holiday break, Minnesota will hold its annual Intrasquad Meet on Saturday, Jan. 5, at 6:00 p.m. in the Sports Pavilion. The Gophers then open their regular season schedule the following Saturday, Jan. 12, with a 6:00 p.m. dual meet against the University of Washington.
