Pitt gymnastics will travel to West Virginia on Friday evening for a Valentine’s Day meet with the Mountaineers for Beauty and the Beast, also featuring a wrestling match, beginning at 6 p.m.
The Panthers sit at 5-2 overall on the season and are coming off their best score of the year with a 194.900 on the road at Maryland on Monday night for a quad meet including the Terrapins, George Washington and Towson.
For her efforts in the meet, senior Katie O'Rourke was named the East Atlantic Gymnastics League’s Specialist of the Week. She took first on the floor exercise, scoring a season-best 9.90, and finished third on the balance beam with a 9.825.
Pitt and West Virginia have a long-standing rivalry, formerly in the EAGL prior to WVU’s move to the Big XII. The teams have met 60 times dating back to 1975 — the first season of Pitt gymnastics.
