SoonerSports.com - " The No. 3 University of Oklahoma men's gymnastics team continued its hot start to the 2012 season by taking down No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, 353.150-347.750.


The Sooners (5-0, 1-0 MPSF) swept all six team event titles and scored almost 10 points higher than their season-opener total in Colorado last weekend.


"I think we're going to be a good team," said OU Head Coach Mark Williams. "I was a little frustrated at times that we were giving away more than we should have. I'm certainly happy for the victory, but we have a lot to do to be a good team and we have a lot more work to do to actually get there."


OU was led by junior Jake Dalton, who took home five event titles (floor, rings, vault, parallel bars and high bar) along with the all-around title with an 89.000."
