The North Carolina gymnastics team sent Maryland back to College Park Saturday, marking the Terrapins’ first loss of the season and vindication for the UNC team.
Maryland beat North Carolina by a slim margin Jan. 26 in College Park, but this Saturday the Tar Heels were able to rebound and refresh their focus to put together a well-rounded performance.
The Tar Heels edged out the No. 15 Maryland Terrapins 195.675 to 194.825 — UNC’s highest score of the season — in Carmichael Arena this weekend.
Senior Elizabeth Durkac said the team had been competing well in parts of meets recently, but it had not been able to perform its best in all four events until Saturday.
“We put a whole meet together, that’s what we wanted to do,” Durkac said. “Last weekend we had two good events, two not-so-great events. (This) was redemption within ourselves.”
