— Junior Diahanna Ham posted her third score of 9.9 on the season as the NC State Wolfpack finished with a final team score of 194.875 on Friday at UNC. The Tar Heels narrowly edged the Pack's score, ending with a 195.050.

"Overall, we had one of the best meets that we've had so far this year," said head coach Mark Stevenson. "We just counted a fall on beam and that proved to be the difference."

The Wolfpack opened the meet with a strong performance on the uneven bars, setting a season-best team score of 48.850 in the event. Senior Rachel Fincham headlined the group with a 9.850 to claim second place, while junior Stephanie Ouellette posted the team's next best score with a 9.8. Freshmen Brittni Watkins and Michaela Woodford also competed in the event scoring a 9.775 and 9.725, respectively. Junior Kristen Harabedian tallied the final score in the event with a 9.7.

"It was huge for us to start the night with a great score on bars," said Stevenson. "We've been pretty solid in all of our others events, so bars has kind of been a down event for us. The girls have done a really great job of making sure that bars gets to the level of the other events."

State followed up its strong opening performance on bars, with a great showing on vault, scoring the same team score of 48.850. Ham claimed the top spot in the event with a score of 9.9. Woodford finished second with a 9.775, while Ouellette and Watkins tallied 9.75s. Fallanca and Johnson each scored a 9.675, as the final score counted on vault.

At the halfway point in the meet, NC State led UNC 97.700 - 97.425.

Ouellette paced the team on floor exercise with a score of 9.850. Ham tallied the second-best score in the event for the Pack with a 9.825. Jarred, Watkins and Woodford each notched 9.775s, to round out State's scoring in the event. The gymnasts combined to post a team score of 49.0 on floor.

The Pack faced its toughest challenge of the night on the final event: beam. State struggled slightly on the apparatus, finishing with a team score of 48.175. Fallanca tallied the highest score for the Pack with a 9.8 to claim second. Woodford posted a 9.75, while Ouellette and Ham recorded a 9.725 and 9.675, respectively.

In the all-around, Ouellette claimed second with a 39.125, while Ham finished third with a 39.075. Woodford also elapsed the 39.0 mark, finishing with a 39.025.

"Our all-arounders did a really nice job for us tonight," Stevenson added.

NC State will return to action on Friday, March 1, when it makes the trip across the country to Provo, Utah, to compete against BYU and Utah at 9 p.m. ET.
