The North Carolina gymnastics team didn’t have to wait long for a shot at redemption.
Less than a week after falling to league rival Maryland in a three-team meet in College Park, Md., the Tar Heels faced the Terrapins again Friday in a head-to-head matchup.
This time, at Carmichael Arena, the result was different. The Tar Heels edged the Terrapins 195.225-192.600, posting a season-high overall score in the victory.
“It was definitely our strongest performance so far this year,” coach Derek Galvin said. “The energy level of the team was the best that I’ve seen so far. The first three meets were good, but we needed a breakthrough meet and this was it.”
Senior Morgan Evans and junior Elizabeth Durkac continued to lead the way for the Tar Heels, taking first and second place, respectively, in the all-around. Durkac’s all-around title Feb. 5 at Maryland earned her East Atlantic Gymnastics League gymnast of the week honors.
