January is four months away, but
the Nebraska men's and women's
gymnastics teams are ready to be
gin preparation for the 1997 season.
Workouts officially began Mon
day, and the women’s team is look
ing to improve bn its most success
ful season ever.
And after last season, the men’s
main goal: remain healthy.
Women’s coach Dan Kendig
said his team hasn’t forgotten last
season, when the Cornhuskers
missed qualifying for the Super Six
by .025 of a pant.
“It still hurts a little bit,” Kendig
said, “when you get that close and
it hurts that bad, you want to do all
you can to get there.”
Seniors Kim DeHaan and Shelly
Bartlett will provide experienced
leadership for the talented Huskers,
Kendig said. The Huskers lose only
one garter, all-arounder Joy Tfcylor,
from lag year’s team.
Seven new faces have beat
added to the team. Headlining the
list of newcomers will be Lincoln
native Heather Brink, who finished
10th in the 1995 U.S. National
“I think Heather’s going to be
strong in all four events,” Kendig
said. “She just needs experience.”
Also joining the Huskers are
Nicole Wilkinson, Rachel
Tschauner, Laura Oholendorf and
twin sisters Arica and Alisha Lamb.
Amber Hallauer, a transfer from
season and compete as a sophomore
Kendig said the team, which
opens its season Jan. 11 in Ames
against Iowa State and Southwest
Missouri State, will have a differ
ent mindset on each event this year.
“We’ll be a lot more aggressive
from the beginning,” he said.
Men's coach Francis Allen
wants to forget last year’s injury
“We will be thin,” Allen said.
“But thin just means we’ve got to
do a good job as coaches, making
sure they don't get hurt.”
Injuries, Allen said, kept Ne
braska fixxn qualifying asa team for
last year's NCAA Championships
in Stanford, Calif. But junior all
arounder Jim Koziol and sopho
more JD. Reive are fully recovered
from injuries that hampered them
Allen said the Huskers will be
strong in every event, particularly
the pommel horse. NCAA champi
onship qualifiers Marshall Nelson
and junior Ryan McEwen will lead
the way for Nebraska on that event.
Three other NCAA qualifiers,
juniors Eton Kinison (floor exercise)
and Bill Mulholland (all-around)
and senior Tbd Harris, who finished
third in the nation on rings with a a
9.8, will also return for the Husk
The only new face in the Huslcer
lineup will be freshman Derek.
Letter, a graduate of Lincoln South
east. Letter has competed interna
tionally and could eventually fill the
void left by all-arounder Jason
Christie, Allen said.
The men will open the season
on Jan. 17 with the Rocky Moun
tain Open in Colorado Springs,
