COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Flames captured first-place tallies in three individual events, but No. 11 Air Force defeated the 14th-ranked UIC men's gymnastics team, 338.900-329.500, Friday night at Cadet West Gym.

The Flames finished first in the floor exercise, pommel horse and all-around competitions, with Dan Zerbal, Lukasz Adamczyk and Joseph Hodges winning the respective events.

"It was a tough day; we're still fighting for consistency," said head coach Charley Nelson. "Dan Zerbel won the floor, and Lucasz won the pommel horse. But misses on parallel bars and some tough calls on the vault made for a tough loss tonight. We'll re-group and be ready for Sunday."

Zerbal scored a meet-high 14.900 on the floor, capturing first-place honors in the event. Meanwhile, Adamcz finished first in the pommel horse (14.700), and Hodges secured a meet-best 80.000 tally in the all-around.

The Flames will return to Cadet West Gym Sunday, when the Flames face a re-match against Air Force, beginning at 2 p.m. MST.
