U men’s gymnasts sweep
The No. 6 Gophers men’s gymnastics team defeated No. 10 Iowa and No. 11 Nebraska in Iowa City. The Gophers scored a season-high 437.400 to Iowa’s 433.050 and Nebraska’s 418.150.
“We talked coming into this meet about not just trying to win but trying to dominate,” Gophers coach Mike Burns said. Minnesota captain Steve Jaciuk won the parallel bars (15.300) and tied for first in the still rings (14.850). Teammate Sean Bauer won in floor exercise (15.500).

They beat top seed Illinois 3-2 in dramatic fashion. Alex Gaugert, Jon DuToit and Matt Rachey of the Gophers all had birdies on the last hole. Gaugert, a senior from Lake Geneva, Wis., won the No. 3 pairing 1-up, DuToit and Rachey halved their matches. Jon Trasmar also won for Minnesota, 3 and 2 in the No. 4 pairing.
• The Gophers women’s track team won only one event on the second day of the Iowa State Classic in Ames but had a handful of high finishes.
