On Friday night, the North Carolina gymnastics team squared off against Temple in Carmichael Arena.
The Tar Heels jumped out to an early advantage and won convincingly, 195.300 to 194.375. UNC improved significantly from last week’s score of 194.375.
After the first rotation, UNC led Temple by a score of 49.000 to 48.650, as the Tar Heels' vault score proved better than the Owls' on bars.
The Tar Heels would end up beating the Owls in vault, as well as placing the top four finishers in the event. In uneven bars, Temple took home a narrow victory, but performances from sophomore Grace Donaghy and senior Morgan Lane who prevented the Owls from crawling closer to the Tar Heels' lead.
Temple then moved to floor, while UNC went to beam. Following the third rotation, the Tar Heels held a slim margin of .200. However, North Carolina was confident going into its best event, floor. In the final rotation, UNC secured a win with a 49.100 score in floor.
