With one of the least experienced rosters in recent history, the North Carolina gymnastics team had trouble with confidence in its first meet of the season.
But with one meet out of the way, the Tar Heels feel much more prepared for their upcoming meet against William & Mary and George Washington at Carmichael Arena Sunday.
Aside from being the home opener for the Tar Heels, the meet is also a “pink meet,” an extension of a partnership the team has formed over the years with the “Get Real and Heel” program that helps rehabilitate breast cancer patients.
“I think we were really excited for the first meet,” senior co-captain Maura Masatsugu said. “But now after having that one meet under our belt … it’s going to boost our confidence a whole lot, especially because this is a home meet.”
The Tar Heels placed second in the Lindsey Ferris Invitational with 192.95 points.
