Maryland senior gymnast Audrey Barber became the fifth-highest career scorer in program history after her performance against Rutgers Saturday. With an all-around score of 39.150, Barber rose her career scoring mark to 1800.80, passing Brandi George for fifth all-time. In her career, Barber has competed in the all-around 37 times.

With nine regular season meets remaining, Barber would only have to average an all-around score of 26.480 to break Rachel Martinez’s program record of 2039.100 career points. She has consistently been rising in Maryland gymnastics’ record books, breaking the freshman record with an uneven bars score of 9.925 and setting the program record with an uneven bars score of 9.950 as a junior in 2020.

A native of Temple Hills, Maryland, Barber has twice been named to the All-Big Ten first team and once named to the second team. She has also qualified for an NCAA regional three times in her career. According to a release from May, when Barber opted to return for a fifth and final season in 2022, head coach Brett Nelligan said “Audrey has already accomplished so much in her gymnastics career and now she has a chance to cement herself as one of the all time greats in Maryland Gymnastics history.”

Barber and the Terrapins will host No. 7 Minnesota on Sunday, January 30 at noon. They will look for their first Big Ten victory, defeating Pitt and Long Island before falling to Rutgers in their conference opener.
