Fallanca scored a career-high 9.95 on the balance beam, tying as the fourth-best score in school history. Fallanca's mark was also good for first in the event and tied as the highest score on the night by any gymnast.

Ouellette was not to be outdone and scored a 9.95 of her own on floor exercise, recording a new career-high in the process to claim first. The score ties as the third-best in program history.

The Wolfpack started the meet on vault, posting a team score of 48.775 the highest team score in the event on the night.

After trailing at the halfway point, the Wolfpack had impressive showings in the last two events to claim the top spot in the final team scores.
