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.
