After a great performance last week at UNC, early this week junior, Caitlyn Cook Furr, was awarded the ECAC Coaches Choice Award! With this being her first season with Tribe Gymnastics we are extremely proud of Caitlyn for all she has done for the team this year!
This past weekend the Tribe travelled to the University of Pittsburgh, competing in a quad meet against Pitt, George Washington, and Rutgers. The meet went extremely well, and the Tribe ended up finishing with our highest team score of the season so far with a 191.825! As well as a season high team score we also had our season high scores on all four events! The Tribe finished out the meet on bars with an incredible performance hitting six for six routines! The energy level of the team continuously built after each event and we were really able to pull everything together. It was great to end the meet on such a high note! As well as a great team performance, there were many individual standout performances. On vault the Tribe had four career high scores and one season high as well from our senior, Kristin Milardo with a 9.775. Freshmen Maggie Lundeen and Brandy Stover also did a great job on bars and beam! Maggie had the Tribe’s highest bar score with a 9.7 and Brandy nailed her beam routine scoring a 9.75! Also Jess Pritchard had a career high on floor with a 9.775. Be sure to check our facebook page to see all of the routines from this weekend!
This week we will be back in the gym for a full week of practice gearing up for our upcoming meet at NC State this Saturday! The team is looking better with each and every practice, and we are looking forward to building on this past meet and improving even more throughout the rest of the season!
