Tumblers ready for triumph I
By John Gaskins
Before the first Nebraska women’s
gymnastics meet last week, Head
Coach Dan Kendig said one of NU’s
opponents, Michigan State, had an
advantage because they already had a
meet under their belt
“Many teams improve the most
between their first and second meets,”
Kendig said. “The jitters and rustiness
is out of them, and they’re ready to
Kendig hopes this will be the case
for his Huskers this weekend as they
take to the road again for a triangular
Friday against No. 18 Arizona and No.
19 Washington at Seattle.
Judging by what the coach said
after last weekend’s quadrangular with
the Spartans, Iowa State and Winona
State, “there’s plenty of improvement”
for his team this weekend.
It won’t be easy. NU captured indi
vidual titles in the all-around (Heather
Brink), balance beam (Courtney
Brown, who tied a school record) and
Misty Oxford (floor exercise), not to
mention the all-around team title.
The performance was solid enough
to jump NU’s national ranking from
11th to seventh this week. Assistant
Coach Rhonda Faehn-Tetreault’s bal
ance beam team is second nationally.
“Being a past Olympian (1988) and
coach (UCLA assistant 1993-94), she’s
really been a great addition to our
staff,” Kendig said. “And all the girls
seem to like her a lot, too.”
Improvements will be tough to
come, though, considering the team’s
short practice week because of travel.
One gymnast who will be more
than excited about the trip to the
Northwest will be Misty Oxford, who
currently ranks ninth nationally in the
The meet will be a homecoming
for the senior, a native of Kelso, Wash.,
and Kendig said it will be a huge night
for her in front of her family and

Letterwinners lead men
By John Gaskins
As he begins his third decade as the
Nebraska men’s gymnastics Head
Coach, Francis Allen has plenty to look
back on and be proud of.
Eight national championships.
Seven NCAA runner-up finishes.
Thirteen conference titles. Thirty-eight
individual national champions. Eleven
Olympians. But the most important
thing for Allen right now is what he has
to look forward to.
Five returning letterwinners. A No.
4 ranking in the preseason national
coaches poll. And the 10th time in histo
ry that Lincoln will play host to the
NCAA Championships, at the Bob
Devaney Sports Center on April 22-24.
The road home will begin this
weekend as the Huskers start their sea
son Friday and Saturday at the Rocky
Mountain Open in Colorado Springs,
“We’re looking to win this week
end,” Allen said. “We would like this
week to set a base for the rest of the sea
Allen said NU’s toughest competi
tion will come from Brigham Young
Of the returning letterwinners, three
are All-Americans: all-arounders
Marshall Nelson, a senior; senior Jim
Koziol; and junior Derek Leiter.
But NU will be without Nelson
indefinitely because of a tom anterior
cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Still, Allen believes the Huskers
will hold up with two Canadian
National Team members, sophomore
Jason Hardabura and freshman Martin
Fournier, rounding out the all-around
“Any time you take away a gymnast
who is capable of scoring a 9.8 or 9.9 on
five events, it is going to be difficult,”
Allen said, “but we have five all
arounders who are as good as anyone in
Numbers, depth favor NU
By Crysttbe Nichols
The Nebraska men’s and women’s
track and field teams return to the Bob
Devaney Sports Center for the
Nebraska Open after claiming two Big
12 Conference titles on the men’s side,
and two second place finishes from the
NU will be opening its home indoor
season Saturday at 9 a.m. with the meet.
About 900 athletes will be competing
from 17 schools.
Head Coach Gary Pepin believes
the Huskers are going to be well-repre
sented by the team consisting of 115 tal
“The school with the largest num
ber of athletes would be Nebraska going
away no contest,” Pepin said.
Senior Shane Lavy’s high jump per
formance in the Kansas State/Oklahoma
State Invitational qualified him for the
NCAA Indoor Championships with a
provisional qual ify ing mark of 7 foot 3 Vi
inches - just an inch and a half short of
an automatic marie
Senior All-American pole vaulter,
Kim Stewart, who placed third last
week, has been nursing an Achilles’ ten
“She has been battling injuries,”
Pepin said, “but right now it’s on the
upswing, so I hope she will get better
Though the team is still early in the
season, Pepin believes the team’s
strength in balance gives them a positive
outlook for Saturday’s meet and the
remainder of the season.
“We’ve just had one meet and I
don’t think that’s told us a whole lot, but
our teams - men and women - have
some quality and in some areas, we
have depth and pretty good balance,”
Pepin said. “Across the board by bal
ance, I mean, we have some pretty good
athletes in almost every event.”
