The Gymdogs will take on every other team ranked in the preseason top-10 beginning with No. 7 Michigan in the season opener Jan. 9 in Ann Arbor.

 

The annual Sneak Peek, which will serve as a chance for fans to catch a glimpse of the 2016 Gymdogs, will be held Friday at 7 p.m. at the Suzanne Yoculan Gymnastics Center. Admission is free.
