February 3, 2013, 9:24 pm·
In Penn gymnastics’ tri-meet on Friday, the Quakers came in second with a 189.575, beating the Centenary score of 187.550, but falling to host Ball State, which came out with a 193.800.
Though not quite as strong as during its performance against Yale last weekend, the team is still showing consistency.
Freshman Elyse Shenberger made her presence known. After a strong effort at Yale, she proved this weekend that she can keep strong even when some of the older team members are not performing at their best.
She placed second on the balance beam with a 9.725, tying her career high, and fourth on the floor with a 9.700, marking a career high.
Though not Penn’s strongest showing of the season, the meet had many high points. Wynne Levy, Megan Milavec, Amber Woo and Amanda Schlaefer all scored new season highs.
Uneven bars is one of the better events for the Quakers, and their team score this weekend of 48.050 marks the season high for the Red and Blue.
The Quakers will be in neighboring West Chester to compete next weekend, followed by their first and only home meet the following weekend at the Palestra.
