The Big Storyline: Maryland posted the second-highest score in program history on the road with Towson. Towson threw up its own high score, good enough to tie for the third-highest in program history, nothing over a 49 on each event for the third time this season. George Washington notched its third straight score over a 195 and its second-best score of the season. Southern Connecticut nearly topped its season high on beam but struggled on bars, continuing to be plagued by bars demons.
Implications: Maryland could put some pressure on Illinois and Iowa this weekend, possibly sliding into sixth to overtake fellow Big Ten Iowa. Towson should hold off North Carolina for another week with a lead of just over three tenths. However, N.C. State continues to sit in first, a slim 0.085 ahead. George Washington could slide fairly high up in the rankings to overtake several teams, leaping from seventh into a possible fourth-place position. However, Pittsburgh would remain close behind if this is how the conference shuffles. Within a competitive GEC conference, the Owls will continue to stay put in sixth place, although William & Mary sits less than a point behind.
Records: Maryland set a program record on bars. Audrey Barber scored a career high 9.950 on floor and in the all-around with a 39.625, also tying a program record. For George Washington, Anneliese Silverman scored a new best of 9.900 on bars. Molly Froman, of Southern Connecticut, scored a career-best 9.750 on beam.
