Terp of the Week: Stephanie Giameo
 Although every gymnastics apparatus is daunting, there's something aboutbalance beam that seems particularly scary. With just four inches to maneuver on, the difference between sticking a landing and falling can come down tocentimeters.Stephanie Giameo not only embraces the beam, she thrives on it. The
sophomore on the No. 18 Maryland gymnastics team is ranked fourth nationallyon the apparatus and averages a 9.885 this season.Giameo started the beam rotation for the Terps in 13 meets last season as afreshman, leading to a 13th-place finish in the event at the NCAA FayettevilleRegional. Coming into this season, Giameo worked hard and is now sixth in therotation, the spot for the best gymnast in the event."In the preseason I focused on being more consistent," said Giameo, "and nowI'm sixth in the rotation."Giameo is the team's anchor on beam, but she stepped up in the Maryland's lastmeet as an all-arounder. With the Terps missing all-arounder freshman Kathy
Tang to an injury, Giameo took home her first all-around gold with a 39.200 and
never scored less than 9.725."I've been pretty consistent overall," said Giameo. "Being confident in every eventis really important. You have your best event and your favorite event, but youhave to keep focused on everything." Although Giameo is a rock on beam, she cites floor exercise as her favoriteevent. In the Terps' last meet against NC State, New Hampshire and Towson,Giameo tied her personal-best with a 9.825 in the event."Floor is my favorite," said Giameo. "I have a lot of fun on floor. Smiling the wholetime and showing off the dance, it really pumps up the crowd."Giameo earned East Atlantic Gymnastics League (EAGL) Gymnast of the Weekhonors for her all-around performance. In her first season on uneven bars,Giameo is averaging 9.735 in the event."I'm really excited," said Giameo of her success. "It shows how your hard workpays off. Every week we've had gymnasts win [personal honors] and it showshow good we've been."Right now Giameo is focused on keeping the Terps as one of the top teams inthe nation.
