EAST LANSING– No. 13 Michigan State won its first Big Ten Regular Season Championship in program history on Feb. 25. MSU is doing exactly what they said they would do. Change everyone’s minds. 

“We knew they could do it and are so proud of how they didn’t give up and pulled it all off,” said head coach Mike Rowe.

The Spartans hold a 9-2 overall record, and share the regular season title with rival No. 4 Michigan. 

MSU will compete during the evening session of the Big Ten Gymnastics Championships on March 18 as the No. 1 seed. The session consists of the top four seeds, who will compete at 5:30 p.m. E.T. 

The Spartans earned the top seed with their dual meet win against the Wolverines on Jan. 27, marking the first time in program history that MSU will compete as the No. 1 seed.

The 2023 Big Ten Championships will take place at the Xtream Arena in Coralville, Iowa, and will be broadcasted on Big Ten Network.
