The North Carolina gymnastics team’s ultimate goal of qualifying for the NCAA championships this spring was brought into sharper focus after Friday’s convincing victory over George Washington in Carmichael Arena.
The Tar Heels picked up a season-high overall score in the 195.725-192.525 win.
“I was very pleased for the athletes,” coach Derek Galvin said. “They’ve been working hard all season long, and we felt like they were primed for a strong meet.”
A trio of upperclassmen turned in outstanding performances.
Junior Elizabeth Durkac took first place in the all-around with a personal-best score of 39.275, senior Morgan Evans placed second in the all-around and first on vault and senior Zoya Johnson topped her personal-best score on the uneven bars to claim first place in the event.
