The host Fighting Illini, ranked 19th nationally, won the event with 154 points while Miami (Fla.) finished second with 100. The Knights took third with 86 points on the strength of five second-place finishes which earned UCF eight points each.
“As a whole we had some performers that did a great job of completing and learning how to handle the pressure of competition,” said head coach Caryl Smith Gilbert. “The meet was very well run by the University of Illinois and we appreciate the opportunity to come here and compete with these teams. I am excited about a lot of the performances. We had some breakthroughs in certain events, but we also had some disappointments. We will go back and get ready for Kentucky next weekend.”
