With under a month until it kicks off the 2014 season, the University of Minnesota women's gymnastics put on its second of two simulation meets Monday afternoon at Peik Gymnasium. It was the final preview of the Gophers before they begin the defense of its Big Ten regular-season title.
Head coach Meg Stephenson returns nine gymnasts from a season ago and welcomes five newcomers to the team.
The gymnasts competed on the vault, bars, beam, and floor exercise at the meet.
Nordquist was to first up on the beam routines and was followed by Holst, Rahon, Covers, Tomson, Mable, Schermann, Russell, Hanley, and Justine Cherwink.
The team finished off the day with the floor exercise, where Nordquist, Holst, Cherwink, Covers, Tomson, Schermann, Mable, Russell, and Rahon participated.
Following the holiday break, Minnesota will hold its annual Intrasquad Meet on Saturday, Jan. 4 at 4 p.m. at the Sports Pavilion. The Gophers then open their regular season schedule the following week when they host Air Force and Lindenwood.
