The University of New Hampshire women's gymnastics team posted a solid score of 193.525, good for second in a quad meet held at the University of Maryland on Friday evening.
    Maryland took first-place honors with a score of 194.7, followed by UNH, Temple (191.2) and then James Madison (187.45).
    Leading the way for the 'Cats was freshman Helena Diodati (Scarborough, Maine) as she took first-place honors in the vault with a score of 9.825. She also finished first overall on bars with a score of 9.775.
    Junior Fairen Plummer (Louisville, Ky.) continued to perform well in the floor exercise as well, posting a first-place score of 9.85.
     Sophomore Melissa Cesar (Valencia, Venezuela) continues her improvement on beam and placed third in the event with an impressive score of 9.8.
    The Wildcats once again made beam their top event, but struggled as a team on vault and bars.
    "Temple was not far behind us when we competed on beam but we pulled together after a tough start to hold them off and earn second place," said head coach Gail Goodspeed. "This was not our best meet, but it was a big improvement on our previous road scores of 189."
    The UNH women's gymnastics team will return to action on March 9 at Arkansas along with Pittsburgh and West Virginia. The 'Cats next home meet is scheduled for March 16 vs. North Carolina. The meet is set to begin at 7 p.m. in Lundholm Gymnasium.
