Through three events at the
NCAA Championships in Los
Angeles Thursday night, Nebraska
women’s gymnast Heather Brink per
formed like she had all year.

an All-American in the all-around,
but she came up a little short on her
double layout on the floor exercise

three events,” Kendig said.
Although Brink was disappointed
with her performance, Kendig said he
thought Brink would be back with a
vengeance next year.
“Hopefully she will feed on her
disappointment,” Kendig said.
