Kendig wants

Nebraska women’s gymnastics
coach Dan Kendig looks for nothing
less than perfection in every event
from his team.
Even though the Comhuskers had a
193.8 team score and won the Masters
Classic over Michigan last Sunday,
they posted their second-lowest score
of the year on beam, 47.45, hitting
only 50 percent of their routines.
That performance, Kendig said, was
simply not good enough. As a result,
the Huskcrs spent this week working
to improve consistency on the beam.
“I’m looking forward to this being
the weekend we j ump out of this beam
slump,” Kendig said. “All we need to
do is do it at one meet, and we’ll know
we can do it any time.”
That time could be 7 p.m., Sunday
at the Bob Devaney Sports Center when
the No. 8 Huskers face Iowa State for
the second time this season. The Ne
braska men’s team will be in action
against Oklahoma and the Olympic
Training Center team.

Men recovering,
hope to improve
By Gregg Madsen
Staff Reporter ~
With three gymnasts out and two i
recovering from injuries, the official (
colors of the Nebraska men’s gymnas- 3
tics team should be *
changed from scar
let and cream to
black and blue.
“We’re a little ;1
beat up,” Coach j
Francis Allen said. <
But even after a j
229.275-225.50 j
bb loss last rriuay io v(
Allen Iowa, the Corn- i
buskers moved up to the No. 3 spot in ■<
this week’s rankings.
Despite last week’s defeat and inju
ries to four of his top ten gymnasts, jj
Allen said he expected the Huskers to
match or improve upon their season
average of 225 points this weekend. j
The Huskers face the Olympic Train
ing Center team and Oklahoma in open
competition at 7 p.m. Sunday at the |
Bob Devaney Sports Center.
The Nebraska women’s gymnas
tics team will be in action against Iowa
State at the same time. Allen said the
atmosphere would be hectic.
“It is distractivc. But if you let your <
teams get used to being babied, then \
they’re going to act like it,” he said.
True freshmen Marshall Nelson and
J.D. Reive will miss the meet because
of injuries. Reive, who has not com
peted this year, is battling chronic back
problems. Allen said Marshall, who
e has competed in the Huskers’ last three
meets, would be missed in the pommel
^ horse and parallel bars.
». Senior all-arounder Jason Christie
d will be close to full speed after recov
ering from an upper respiratory infee
□ tion, Allen said.
And sophomore Jim Keziol,-who-,
suffered a slight bicep tear against
New Mexicoon Feb. 18, will compete
in the all-around on Sunday. Allen
* said Koziol had changed several elc
j ments in his routines to reduce stress
’ on the injured muscle.
h Without the support of Nelson and
•- Reive, Allen said, the pressure to per
l, form will be put squarely on the shoul
q ders of the upperclassmen.
Nebraska defeated the Sooners at
n the Rocky Mountain Open on Jan. 19
! 20 and in dual competition on Feb. 11.
s The Olympic Training Center team
; won the Rocky Mountain Open with a
j 226.675.
Like the Huskers, Oklahoma also is
3 missing two stars because of injury,
s Allen said that the Sooners’ top two
3 all-arounders, Casey Bryan and Jer
emy Killcn, were questionable for the
s meet.
“Oklahoma’s a good team,” he said.
> “But their stats don’t show it. If you
- add Bryan and Killen, they are going
to be tough.”
