North Carolina

The 2017 season for the UNC Tarheels saw their first regionals appearance since 2013, where they placed 5th, ending the season with an 11-4 record. UNC saw individual success with rising senior Morgan Lane, who was awarded EAGL Gymnast of the Year and made first team All-EAGL while teammate Khazlia Hislop was awarded Freshman of the Year. One of UNC’s memorable meets of the season came in their January home opener against Florida, where the Tarheels hosted Nike’s #BETRUE event in support of LGBTQ athletes. The event set an attendance record for the team and Lane continued her 11-meet streak of a score above 39.000. In the past, the Tarheels have won five EAGL championships, the latest being in 2011. Former successful UNC gymnasts include Courtney Bumpers, Anna Wilson, Christine Robella and Morgan Evans.
