Emma Spence won two event titles — and the all-around crown — but Nebraska fell to Maryland 195.875-195.325 in a women's gymnastics dual Saturday at the Devaney Sports Center.
Spence shined in both the floor and vault events, posting a 9.900 in both wins. Spence is a sophomore from Canada who is evolving into one of Nebraska's most reliable players in the lineup.
Maryland pulled away on the beam, where the Terrapins posted the top two scores. Maddie Komoroski led the way with a score of 9.875, followed by Josephine Kogler's 9.850.
Maryland also found separation on the bars, posting the top-two scores in that event. Victoria Gatzendorfer and Elizabeth Debarberie both had 9.800.
Saturday was Nebraska's annual Pink Meet, which attracted a strong crowd to the Devaney Sports Center.
