finish Big 8
By Rich Cooper
The Nebraska women's gymnastics
team scored a Bob Devaney Sports Cen
ter record by defeating Missouri 187.05
to 177.65 in its last home meet of the
season Friday night.
Nebraska, which finished its regular
season undefeated in Big Eight Confer
ence competition was led by sopho
mores Jeaneane Smith and Crystal
Savage. Smith finished first in the all
around and tied her career best with a
37.75. Savage finished second with a
Nebraska coach Rick Walton said he
was happy with the team's performance
but thought it could have scored a 188.
"The team hasn't hit a 188 yet, and
we hoped tonight to go six for six in all
four events, but fell a little short in the
floor exercise," Walton said. "We had a
good pace to go 188 after the first three
events, but once again floor (exer

cise) hurt us."
The Huskers set two school records
on vault and balance beam. On vault,
Savage and Smith both scored 9.55.
Freshmen Tami Bair and Racine Smith
scored 9.5 and 9.4, to give Nebraska a
47.45. That broke the school record by
five-tenths of a point.
On the balance beam Smith scored a
9.55 and three other Huskers scored 9.3
to give a total 46.70, which set a new
Sports Center record.
Walton said the 187 should bring
Nebraska's average up a few tenths of a
point, which will be important for their
seeding in the Region 5 meet on April
11 in Tempe, Ariz.
Walton said he thinks the region is
the toughest in the nation because
every team in the region has an average
of about 185.
"We have to continue to get that
average up because everybody else has
just as high an average as we do," Wal
ton said. "If we can go into the region
meet seeded second or third, then we
would draw bye in the first rotation,
which is very important for us."
Walton said the next few meets of
the season will be tough because every
meet will be against a top-20 team. He
said the freshmen on the team are
beginning to show some maturity in the
Walton said he was happy with the
performance of freshman Michelle Bry
ant, who competed in the all-around for
the first time in her career.
Bryant, from Blue Springs, Mo., scored
36.20. She scored 9.3 on vault and 9.3
on balance beam but fell on the uneven
bars and floor exercise. Bryant tied for
third place in the all-around with Mis
souri's Kristi Leslie. ,
'' Next weekend the men's and women's
teams will travel to Ohio State to take
on the Buckeyes in a double dual meet.
The women's team has split both pre
vious meetings with the Buckeyes. Wal
ton said the meet at Ohio State will be
"very tough" because Ohio State is
about the same caliber as Nebraska.
Walton said he hopes both teams
will be hot so they can score high and
increase their averages. He said he'll
give his team a couple of days off to let
them catch up in school and rest. After
the meet against Ohio State, he said,
the Huskers will compete at the Big
Eight Conference Championships in
Columbia, Mo., on March 27.
"We maybe the Big Eight regular
season champions, but we still have
one more meet to compete in that will
decide if we are the conference cham
pions," Walton said. "Oklahoma has
won the championship the last three
years in a row, and I'm sure they're
going to give us a fight. They don't want
to give up that trophy to us." v
