After a.............turbulent week to say the least, the #9 Wolverine Gymnastics team took the Crisler Center stage for the first time in 2019. It was also the B1G opener.
Michigan opened with their rivals from "over there", MSU.
It was a rough meet. There were some falls from both teams, and Michigan posted a very un-Michiganlike 195.975 team score. A season-low team score of 49.150 to start out the meet coupled with some falls on beam and another sub-49 score on the floor added up to the sub-par overall score.
Yes, it is still January but one has to wonder if this past week led to this. Good to see that despite all that, a team WIN was still had.
Michigan took the meet, 195.975-194.050.
Michigan won all 4 events as a team and Wolverines took the individual titles for all 4 events (Emma McLean on vault, freshman Natalie Wojcik on bars and beam, Olivia Karas on floor).
The Wolverines have beaten the Spartans each of the last 28 times the two teams have faced off, dating all the way back to the 2007 season.
Michigan is now 5-2 (1-0 B1G) and will travel to Maryland next Saturday night.
