North Carolina welcomed No. 3 Florida to Carmichael Arena Friday night for its first home dual meet of the 2017 season. The Gators proved worthy of their lofty ranking, posting a 197.325, while the youthful Tar Heels posted an encouraging 194.200. Carolina's revamped roster includes 12 newcomers and just five returning letterwinners.
Turner's Take on GoHeels.com: The two teams wore rainbow-themed #BETRUE t-shirts, and the Tar Heels tossed commemorative shirts to the crowd, many of whom were wearing rainbow 'NC' buttons. "It was awesome," Morgan Lane said of the night. "There's not a better word to encapsulate it all, but the amount of people that turned out was incredible. The #BETRUE campaign is really cool, just showing that we can love people, no matter if they're different from us or the same. We love every one. So it was really cool that this many people came out, and there as also much energy. It was so much fun."
