Jan. 20, 2013
CHAPEL HILL - The George Washington gymnastics team totaled 192.475 points, led by a first-place floor exercise routine from senior Stephanie Stoicovy, as the Colonials finished in third place in Sunday's tri-meet at North Carolina's Carmichael Arena.
The host Tar Heels won the meet with a score of 194.500. William & Mary finished in second place with 192.925, followed by the Colonials.
GW posted scores of 48.250 on vault, 48.625 on uneven bars, 47.100 on balance beam and 48.500 on the floor exercise.
Stoicovy won the floor exercise for the second week in a row, posting a 9.850 on Sunday afternoon. She added a 9.675 on vault (9th), 9.625 on uneven bars (16th) and a 9.775 on balance beam (t-4th). Her all-around score of 38.925 clinched second-place overall for the meet.
Junior Betsy Zander was the only other all-around entry for the Colonials on Sunday. The Millersville, Md., native posted scores of 9.625 on vault (t-12th), 9.750 on uneven bars (t-7th), 9.125 on balance beam (15th) and 9.700 on floor exercise (t-10th). Her all-around score of 38.200 placed her fifth overall.
Sophomore Elena Corcoran topped her season-opening vault routine of 9.725 with a 9.775 on Sunday afternoon, which was good enough for second place in the event. She added a 9.075 on balance beam and a 9.450 on floor exercise.
Junior Taylor Henderson posted a career-high 9.800 on the uneven bars to tie for third place in the event. She added a 9.025 on floor exercise.
The Colonials suffered an uncharacteristic five falls on the balance beam, but still got strong performances from senior Kayla Carto (9.800, third place) and Stoicovy (9.775, t-4th).
