Maryland gymnastics had one of its strongest performances in program history Monday in the Terp Tri-Meet.

The Terps defeated both No. 6 Minnesota (196.225) and Pittsburgh (196.450) with a score of 196.700. Maryland’s final score marks the fourth-best one in the program’s record books.

Senior Audrey Barber put up a score of 9.900 on floor and junior Alexsis Rubio did so on vault. Freshman Josephine Kogler earned a 9.875 on beam, the second-best in the event behind Minnesota’s Ona Loper. Barber also put together the best all-around score for the Terps finishing with a 39.425.

The Terps are now 3-2 and will next travel to Toledo, Ohio for the Big Five Meet. Maryland will have a tough task ahead to face No. 16 Ohio State, No. 17 Iowa, No. 1 Michigan and No. 20 Illinois.
