Men's gymnastics beats Buckeyes in dual for first time since 2004

BY COLT ROSENSWEIG

The Buckeyes thought they had it.
The No. 7 Ohio State men's gymnastics team had beaten the Wolverines three years running, and looked to be clawing its way to a comeback at Cliff Keen Arena on Saturday night.
But the fifth-ranked Wolverines knew the meet was theirs.
They didn't panic. Not after two rough routines to lead off floor exercise. Not after Ohio State took the lead after three events. Not when the first five Michigan parallel-bars sets all had major mistakes.

Rais hits his sets on Senior Night

BY COLT ROSENSWEIG

It began slowly in the back of the team bus, a few voices joining in with Journey's "Don't Stop Believing." Riding back from a defeat at Illinois on March 9, the Michigan men's gymnastics team suddenly decided it was time to sing.
Within minutes, a team-wide karaoke party was in full swing.
For senior Dan Rais, the moment was "euphoric."
"At first, I didn't think anything of it," Rais said. "But after we stopped for a little bit, it was so different. It felt like it was just a different team. . It was like having all my best friends, and doing what we love to do."

Twenty four routines stand between the Michigan women's gymnastics team and a perfect regular season.
There's just one catch - they'll be stacking up against 24 performances from No. 3 Utah.
That doesn't mean the fourth-ranked Wolverines (5-0 Big Ten, 18-0 overall) will be intimidated when they take on the Utes Saturday.
The last time Michigan competed in Crisler Arena two weeks ago, it knocked off No. 1 Georgia with a season-high 197.600-point score.

Blue closes out season against Ohio State

BY COLT ROSENSWEIG

Sixty years ago, the Michigan men's gymnastics team regained varsity status under Newt Loken.
The energetic 89-year-old coach, who guided the Wolverines to 12 Big Ten titles and two national championships in 36 seasons, hasn't missed a home meet since, even though he retired in 1983.
"I remember him being to pretty much every meet, but I never realized that he's been to every one," senior Dan Rais said. "It's pretty cool to know that someone is so dedicated to our sport."

Women's gymnastics uses subs to beat three in quad meet

BY NICOLE AUERBACH

Correction Appended
For the first time this season, Jaclyn Kramer didn't just put on her uniform and support her teammates with cheers and hugs on the sidelines.
The sophomore earned a chance to compete and contribute with more than just words of encouragement. And Kramer didn't disappoint - she posted a 9.650 score on floor exercise and was a part of the Michigan women gymnastics team's three victories this weekend at Maryland's Comcast Center.
