Japan, UNL to tumble
in gymnastics meet
By Rich Cooper
Nebraska Union Lower Level
The Japan All Star gymnastics team
will square off against the Nebraska
men's and women's gymnastics team at
4 p.m. Sunday at the Bob Devaney
Nebraska men's gymnastics coach
Francis Allen said it will be a tough
meet. The Huskers won the Big Eight
Invitational last Saturday night with a
team score of 276.8.
Allen said he was very happy with
the performances of the team, especially
Kevin Davis, Neil Palmer and Tom
Schlesinger who took the first three
places in the all-around competition.
Allen said he thinks his team is the
best team in the nation especially after
it scored a 276 in its first meet.
Allen also said he thinks he has the
best freshmen class in the nation this
year. Two out of three freshmen
competed for the Cornhuskers Saturday
night. Bob Stelter from Burbank, Calif.,

finished fifth in the all-around with a
53.95. The other freshman, Patrick
Kirksey from Tucker, Ga., scored a
53.10 in the all-around, a 9.5 on the
pommel horse and a 9.3 on floor
In order for the Huskers to defeat
the Japanese, they are going to have to
stay intense the whole meet, Allen
"I see us being competitive with
them, but the pressure is on them
because they haven't lost a meet yet,"
Allen said. "They know we are going to
come after them, we do every year."
The Huskers will be without junior
Mike Epperson, who broke a bone in
his right wrist over the summer and
will be out for the entire season.
"Mike could come back and compete
for us toward the end of the season, but
he wouldn't be healthy and he would
just be wasting a season," Allen said.
"It would be to his benefit that he sit
out this year and get in shape for next
On the women's side, the Cornhuskers
will be trying to win their second
straight meet with the Japanese.
"We really had a good year last year,
we finished 17th in the nation,"
Nebraska coach Rick Walton said. "That
success has continued into the fall and
with our freshmen class this year, we
are an NCAA Championship caliber
Walton said the two good things
about his team this year are depth and
the people he has returning.
Walton said the top returning gym
nasts are junior Racine Smith, and
sophomore Crystal Savage, Jeaneane
Smith and Mary Ocel.
"The Japanese have an advantage
over us because they have already
competed in four meets, when this is
our first meet," Walton said. "But our
advantage is we have been working in
the gym all fall and the girls are
anxious to compete and that will
definitely help us."
Walton said Nebraska fans should
expect to see harder routines from the
gymnasts on the uneven bars and floor
