The Tar Heels' Courtney Bumpers took all-around honors with a 39.475 after scoring a perfect 10.0 on the floor exercise and also winning the balance beam (9.850) and the vault (9.900). She placed in a tie for third with GW's Rachel Mann (Atlanta, GA/Lakeside) on the uneven parallel bars with a score of 9.725.
GW head coach Margie Foster-Cunningham singled out the performance of sophomore Tiffany Jones (Ravenna, OH/Walsh Jesuit) who placed 15th in the vault with a score of 9.550.
