Posted January 20

Sophomore Brittni Watkins tallied the 12th score of 9.925 in program history on vault Sunday afternoon, as the NC State gymnastics team competed in a Beauty and the Beast meet at Kent State alongside the NC State wrestling team. Kent State won the meet with a team score of 195.400, while the Wolfpack posted a team total of 194.150.

The Wolfpack started the meet on the uneven parallel bars, where Stephanie Ouellette and Watkins each posted a score of 9.800 to lead the squad and tie for first place. As a team, the Pack posted a score of 48.075.

The Pack next moved to vault, where each of State’s six gymnasts in the lineup scored a 9.775 or higher. Watkins, a native of Albany, N.Y., captured first place with a career best 9.925. Senior Diahanna Ham also scored a 9.900 to finish in second place in the individual competition, while Ouellette and freshman Courtney Bisbe each contributed a 9.800. In addition, Hannah Fallanca and Ellen Marion both posted a score of 9.775. As a team, NC State recorded a season-best score of 49.200, which ties as seventh best in program history.

“We had really good vaults today and three of them stuck the landing,” Stevenson said. “That makes a huge difference and I was pretty happy with how they did.”

At the midway point of the meet, NC State trailed the Golden Flashes, 97.825 – 97.275.

On the floor exercise, the squad totaled a score of 48.850. Watkins and junior Lane Jarred each performed a routine that scored a 9.825, while Marion tallied a 9.750. Fallanca and senior Kristen Harabedian also posted a score of 9.725 to contribute to the team total.

State concluded the meet on the balance beam, where it recorded a team total of 48.025. Watkins paced the squad and finished first overall with a 9.850, while Ham and Harabedian each tallied a 9.725 on the apparatus.

Watkins captured the all-around title for the second time this season with a career high, 39.400.

“Brittni had a career high again today on the all-around,” Stevenson said. “She’s doing a great job and is looking great.”

Up next, the Wolfpack will host a Beauty and the Beast meet at 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 24, alongside the NC State wrestling team inside Reynolds Coliseum. The gymnastics team will host Texas Woman’s and William & Mary.
