A LOOK AT 2016
The Buckeyes return 10 letterwinners off the 2015 NCAA Regional squad and welcome five newcomers to go along with redshirt freshman Kaitlyn Hofland, who missed all of last season with an injury.

Ohio State sits just outside the Road to Nationals rankings this week. No. 3 Michigan leads the conference, followed by No. 14 Nebraska, No. 18 Minnesota and No. 24 Iowa and No. 25 Illinois.

The Buckeyes also square off with No. 9 Boise State Friday night in Boise.

As a team, Ohio State ranks 22nd nationally on balance beam and 25th vault.

Kaitlyn Hofland was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week, the conference office announced Feb. 9.

The Georgetown, Ontario, native helped the Buckeyes earn a season-high 196.350 in a tri-meet win at Rutgers with Yale at Rutgers Athletic Center. Hofland earned career highs on vault, bars and beam in the victory. She tied for third on vault with a 9.800, tied for first on bars at 9.875 and won balance beam with a 9.925.
