Wolverines look for road victory over powerful Sooners

BY COLT ROSENSWEIG

Almost exactly one year ago, the Wolverines shocked the college gymnastics world, upsetting powerhouse Oklahoma in Ann Arbor.
Tomorrow, the second-ranked Wolverines will face the Sooners again. But this time, it will be in enemy territory.
"It should be an exciting showdown, hopefully as exciting as it was last year," sophomore Torrance Laury said. "It was the most memorable competition that I've competed in."

'M' upsets reigning champs at Cliff Keen

"I think we served notice on the NCAA gymnastics world that we'll be a force to be reckoned with," Michigan coach Kurt Golder said.

BY NICOLE AUERBACH

One beam. Six gymnasts. Three falls.
Few could balance on the beam in Saturday's meet, but those who did made the difference.

The slim margin of victory can be attributed to the team's rocky beam performance, which counted half-point deductions for each fall.
But three impressive showings on beam gave Michigan just enough to offset the falls and defeat the Nittany Lions.
