The No. 8 Iowa men’s gymnastics team placed fourth in its session of NCAA qualifiers in Ann Arbor, Mich., on April 10-12.

The team finished with an overall score of 425.950 — not enough for Iowa to finish top three and move on to the team finals.

Michigan successfully defended its title by winning in the team finals with a score of 445.05, more than 4 points better than runner-up Oklahoma.

Individually, the Hawkeyes had seven gymnasts compete in individual events, redshirt senior Matt McGrath, redshirt junior Lance Alberhasky, junior Mitch Landau, sophomore Jack Boyle, sophomore Matt Loochtan, sophomore Doug Sullivan, and freshman Corey Paterson all represented Iowa.

Loochtan and Landau both qualified for the individual event finals. Loochtan finished seventh on rings with a score of 14.925. Oklahoma’s Michael Squires took first in the event with a 15.800.

Landau competed on high bar and also finished seventh. He scored a 14.925, with Illinois’ Jordan Valdez winning the event by recording a 15.525.
