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.

As an adventurous four-year-old, Sarah Curtis used to try out her own flips and tumbles on the sidelines of her older sister's gymnastics practices.
"Eventually, my mom decided it'd be safer to put me in the sport rather than me doing it on the side," Curtis said with a laugh.

But for freshman Ben Baldus-Strauss, it meant learning to do floor exercise on just one good arm.

Even with multiple X-rays and an MRI, doctors weren't sure what was wrong and eventually just immobilized the wrist. Baldus-Strauss, normally an all-arounder, couldn't practice pommel horse, rings, parallel bars or high bar, all of which require both arms for support.

Wolverines up to the task against No. 1 Bulldogs

BY NICOLE AUERBACH

The Michigan women's gymnastics team has never won a national championship in its 32 years as a varsity program.
Georgia has won eight titles in the last 21 years.
In that span, Michigan gymnasts have earned six individual event titles at nationals to Georgia's 29.
So, understandably, this weekend's matchup against No. 1 Georgia, the three-time defending national champion, will be a daunting task for the Wolverines. Michigan has beaten the Gym Dogs just once in 20 tries, with its lone victory coming in 2002.
