Maryland gymnastics got off to a perfect start to its 2022 season as it won the Pitt ‘Until We Unite Meet’ at the University of Pittsburgh on Sunday. The program took down both Pitt and LIU at the event to begin the season 2-0.

Maryland ended the event with a score of 192.925, more than Pitt (192.900) and LIU (192.650). It won the vault and bars with performances from all-around freshman Josephine Kogler and all-around senior Audrey Barber.

Kogler posted an event-high score of 9.850 in the Vault and Maryland’s all-around senior Alexis Rubio finished with the second-highest score with 9.825. Then in bars, Barber won the event with 9.850, which was her highest mark of the season. All-around junior Emma Silberman ended tied for second in bars, accumulating a 9.825.

Elsewhere, Barber was also effective in the beam and all-around events. She took the crown in the all-around with a 39.225 and she led Maryland’s performers with a 9.825 mark in the beam.
