Nebraska's gj'mnastics' teams will
travel to Columbus, Ohio, this weekend
to take on Big Ten Conference power
Ohio State in a double dual meet
Nebraska women's coach Rick Wal
ton said he hopes both his team and
Ohio State's team are warmed up for
this meet because if both teams have a
good meet, the Cornhuskers average
score may increase.
"I hope both us and Ohio State are
as hot as a firecracker," Walton said.
"If we are hot, then maybe we can score
that 188 or 189 that we have wanted to
hit all season."
Last weekend against Missouri, the
Huskers, ranked No. 9 in the NCAA
coaches poll, defeated the Tigers 187.05
to 177.65 to stay undefeated in the Big
Eight Conference. Walton said he
thought Nebraska would finally score a
188 in the final rotation against Mis
souri, but three Huskers fell on floor
Walton said the meet against Ohio
State is going to be a good meet
because both teams have good talent.
"Ohio State is going to be tough to

to continue to raise our average up, it
would be nice to go into regionals with
an average of 18G, which might give us
an automatic berth into the NCAA
Another important thing about the
Ohio State meet, Walton said, is that it
will be a good tuneup for the Big Eight
Championships next weeked in Co
lumbia, Mo.
Walton said the Big Eight Cham
pionships are going to be a "dogfight."
The Huskers have defeated three-time
Big Eight Champion Oklahoma twice
this season. This means that Oklahoma
will be ready to protect its title, he
Walton said this weekend's meet
could be the one his two freshmen all
arounders, Tami Bair and Michelle Bry
ant, break 37 points. Nebraska's other
two all-arounders, Jeaneane Smith
and Crystal Savage, are ranked No. 8
and No. 15 in the nation in all-around
scoring average.
The men's team is coming off a two
week break. Last weekend they were
supposed to compete in a triangular
against Minnesota and Wisconsin but
their flight out of Lincoln was canceled
because of engine problems.

Nebraska men's coach Francis Allen
said the Ohio State meet will be impor
tant because they need to get a fifth
road score to count for the NCAA
Championships. He said if they don't
do well against Ohio State, they would
have to count the 273 that they scored
in their loss to Oklahoma on Jan. 30 in
Norman, Okla.
"The score against Ohio State will
be very important, but the team seems
very anxious for this meet," Allen said.
The Huskers are ranked No. 2 in the
nation behind UCLA with a scoring
average of 282.22.
Allen said he thinks he has the two
best all-arounders in the nation in Tom
Schlesinger and Kevin Davis. Schlesin
ger's all-around average is a 57.45 and
Davis's is 57.35.
Allen said Ohio State is going to try
to "pick-off the Huskers, and since
the meet is at home, it will be ready for
For the third year in a row, Nebraska
has a candidate for the Nissan Award,
the Heisman trophy of college gj'mnas
tics. Neil Palmer, the only senior on the
team, is in the final balloting with
Oklahoma's Mike Rice and other prom
inent seniors in the nation. Last year,
Nebraska's Wes Suter won the award.
