Men's Gymnastics Team Travels To Minneapolis
Jan. 21, 2000
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- The second-ranked Illinois men's gymnastics team will travel to Minneapolis to take on No. 7 Minnesota in a Big Ten dual meet, Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m.
The Illini (5-2 overall, 3-2 in the Big Ten) will be led by top-ranked all-arounder Leo Oka and seven-time All-American Travis Romagnoli. Oka placed second in the all-around at last week's Windy City Invitational, but his score of 57.00 in the event against UIC is still the nation's best this season. Romagnoli, who sat out for the second half of the 1999 season, has battled back and posted the second-best high bar score in the nation.
The Illini defeated Minnesota in the two teams' only meeting this year at The Windy City Invitational.
