    Congratulations to Heather Brink, NU Graduate and Lincoln Native and the only Nebraska woman to win an All Around National Title for NU. She certainly proved she was a great athlete. I just hope it will translate to being a good coach, like HCSF!

    "Brink was an 11-time All-America gymnast at Nebraska from 1997 to 2000. Brink permanently etched her name in the Nebraska record books by winning two national titles at the 2000 NCAA Championships. Brink was the first Husker woman gymnast to win an NCAA all-around national title and the second to win a vault national title, leading the Huskers to a fourth-place national finish in 2000. She also finished her career with six regional titles and eight conference crowns.

    Brink was selected as the 2000 Honda Award winner, representing the nation’s top female collegiate gymnast. She became the first Husker gymnast to score a 10.0, and recorded three perfect scores during her senior season."

    The No. 18 Nebraska women's gymnastics team won the 29th annual Masters Classic, the 25th time the Huskers have won the Masters Classic. The Huskers posted a season high team score 197.675, the sixth highest team score in team history and the highest since NU posted the same score in 2013 against Iowa. This is the second highest score of any team in the Big Ten this season behind Michigan's 197.775.
    No. 9 Kentucky finished with a score of 197.200 and Illinois State a 191.625.
