Nebraska wins 3rd consecutive gymnastics crown

Paced by a program-record 49.725 on vault, the No. 9 Nebraska women’s gymnastics team captured its third consecutive conference crown – the last two coming in the Big Ten – Saturday night at the 2013 Big Ten Women’s Gymnastics Championships.

The Huskers amassed 197.800 points, a conference championship school record, on their way to sending head coach Dan Kendig to his 14th conference title at Nebraska. Nebraska’s crown marked the first time the program has earned three straight conference titles since 2001-02-03.
