Maryland gymnastics announced the schedule for its upcoming winter season on Thursday. It will begin on Dec. 7, when the annual intra-squad meet will take place, and potentially run through the beginning of April if Maryland is successful in the Big Ten Championships.
Some games to keep an eye on this season will occur during the Big Five Meet in late February. Here, the Terps will face off against notable Big Ten opponents Illinois and Iowa, who are consistently some of the best gymnastics teams in the country. They will also battle Michigan, who boasts arguably the nation’s best collegiate squad.
Head coach Brett Nelligan, who signed a five-year extension back in September, will look to continue his recent success with Maryland gymnastics after they advanced to the second round of the Tuscaloosa NCAA Regionals in 2021. This past season, Maryland finished with an 18-9 record and made another trip to the NCAA Regionals, where they set a program record with 196.025 points. This year, keep an eye out for senior Audrey Barber, who is currently in the top 10 for all-time points scored among active gymnasts.
