The University of Nebraska is one of the most tradition-rich programs in men’s gymnastics. The Huskers have captured eight NCAA team championships, while earning seven more NCAA runner-up finishes in school history. NU won national titles in 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1988, 1990 and 1994.
Only 17 programs in history have won NCAA men’s gymnastics titles, and Nebraska is one of only four schools in the nation to win more than four crowns. Since 1980, the Huskers lead the nation with an amazing seven NCAA team championships, including an astounding five straight titles from 1979 through 1983.
Entering the 2014 season, Nebraska has earned 29 postseason appearances and owns over 810 all-time wins. The Huskers have won 14 conference titles in the past 20 years, while advancing to the NCAA Championships 15 times during that span.

A total of 45 Nebraska gymnasts have earned 133 All-America awards for the Huskers, including 11-time honorees Emily Parsons and Heather Brink. The Huskers brought home six All-America awards in 2013, including three first-team honors by Emily Wong. Wong also added a second-team honor, while Jessie DeZiel earned a pair of second-team awards. Nebraska has had at least one
All-American every season since 1995, a total of 19 straight seasons, including 121 in Coach Dan Kendig’s 20 years as NU’s head coach.
