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.
