EAST LANSING, Mich. – The UIC women’s gymnastics team (7-5) logged another 195 score (195.175) Friday against Michigan State as the squad was edged by the Spartans, 195.550-195.175 inside the Jenison Field House in East Lansing, Mich.

“We had a great day on several events,” co-head coach Peter Jansson said. “Bars, beam and floor were absolutely fantastic. There were several kids that had great days. Andie (Skala) was solid on all four events with a 39.100. Chantel (Turk) had at least a 9.8 on all events tonight. It was a great team score, and Emily (Lawrence) stepped in to compete on beam, which really helped us out.”
