Seniors Brown, Zaziski Lead Michigan Past Maryland 


The No. 7 University of Michigan women's gymnastics team continued its home success in 2018 with a 196.875-195.050 victory over No. 36 Maryland on Sunday (Feb. 4) in Crisler Center.

It was princess and super hero day at Crisler Center with kids dressed in all sorts of costumes throughout the arena, waving glitter wands or wearing decorated super hero masks as they cheered on the Wolverines.

The Michigan team looked more like super heroes on what was indeed Super Bowl Sunday, as they were led by seniors Brianna Brown and Paige Zaziski. Both seniors put up all-around scores above a 39.300 to lead the team to its fourth win of the season.

"It was always great to be home," said Zaziski. "We love our fans and they helped us have a good time today. We just want to keep improving."

Brown won the all-around for the second time in her career with a 39.425. She was strong on all four events with a score of 9.800 or higher on each one. Her top event was floor exercise, where she scored a 9.900 to match a career high. She also tied for second on uneven bars with a 9.875.

Zaziski earned three event titles. She was on fire for most of the meet, recording a 9.900 score on each of the first three events to earn first place. Her 9.900 on vault gave her just her second vault victory at Michigan and tied with junior Olivia Karas for the win. The 9.900 on bars was Zaziski's eighth bars title in two years at U-M and her 9.900 on beam set a career high as she won the event for the first time. She ended with an all-around score of 39.375.

Michigan made it a sweep of the event titles as junior Emma McLean won floor for the fourth straight week. She entered the meet ranked fifth in the nation on floor and hit her 9.925 average to capture the crown.

The Wolverines scored a 49.275 on vault to rebound from two sub-49.000 scores the last two weeks. Beam was also a highlight as Michigan set a season high with a 49.325.
