Gymnastics took home back-to-back wins accompanied by two back-to-back season-high scores at a pair of tournaments this weekend.

With a season-high team score of 195.175, GW beat out Penn, Towson and William & Mary to win at the Towson Invite at the Show Place Arena on Friday. The Revs went on to beat Long Island University with a new season-best of 195.575 at a meet in New York on Sunday. 

On Friday, freshmen Sophia Tyeryar and Delaney DeHaan each posted a career-high 9.800 on the bars to tie for first in the event. Junior Rachel Katz followed with a solid 9.725 to help lead the team. Anneliese Silverman (9.700), Kendall Whitman (9.650) and Maya Peters (9.100) also added to GW’s impressive score in the rotation. 

Silverman led on the beam, putting up a 9.750 and taking first place in the event. DeHaan scored a second career-high during the invite adding a 9.700. Whitman and Junior Nancy Kiner matched performances to both scoring 9.675s. Sarah Zois and Brooke Izzo rounded out GW’s lineup with 9.500 showings on the beam.

Whitman outshined all floor competitors to claim first with a near-perfect 9.900. Silverman tumbled her way to a 9.875, tacking on another career-high score for the Revs. Sophomore Kasey Burke followed close behind, grabbing a 9.825 from the judge’s table. Marlee York, Zois and Payton Lynch also added to GW’s floor performances.

Burke closed out the list of highs for the Revs, with an overall first-place finish on the vault. She scored the second 9.900 of the day for GW. Zois notched her highest score of the day with a 9.850. Whitman came on the trails adding a 9.800. York, Katz and Silverman tied vaulting, all scoring 9.775, closing out GW’s winning day. 

Whitman, Zois and Izzo swept the East Atlantic Gymnastics League awards for week three of competition heading into the Towson Invite. Whitman was named Gymnast of the Week for a previous all-around first-place finish at Towson on Jan. 25. This is her second time claiming the award this season. Zois earned Specialist of the Week honors for her continued success on the vault. She snagged the Gymnast of the Week title earlier in the season. Izzo won Rookie of the Week. 

Whitman was previously on the All-EAGL First Team for vault and floor. Zois has also made honors for her vault performances, making All-EAGL second team in the event. Izzo is only in her first year of collegiate competition but has had an exciting season thus far. 

At Sunday’s competition, three Revs led the team to first-place finishes in all four events. Silverman took first place all around adding 39.175 to the Revs’ win. Whitman led on the floor and beam scoring 9.925 and 9.750, respectively. Zois placed first on vault with a score of 9.875. Katz evened out the effort on bars with a 9.825.

The Revs competed in four events, scoring 48.675 on bars, 48.775 on beam, 49.200 on floor and 48.925 on vault.

The Revs will be back home after their long weekend on the road for their Pink Meet. They will battle Kent State, University of New Hampshire, Towson and William & Mary on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m.
