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 six crowns. Since 1980, the Huskers are second the nation with an amazing seven NCAA team championships, including an astounding five straight titles from 1979 through 1983. Only Oklahoma has more, with its eight titles.

A native of Layton, Utah, Christopulos is the first Husker to compete for Team USA as a senior national team member since 1998. The junior is a four-time All-American and the 2023 Big Ten Gymnast of the Year. "

"Nebraska men's gymnast Taylor Christopulos capped his senior national team debut with a first-place finish with Team USA at the Pan American Championships in Medellin, Columbia, on Sunday, May 28.

Christopulos helped Team USA to a 247.499 team score, finishing nearly 10 points ahead of second-place Canada, who scored a 238.599 overall.

The junior finished with the highest vault score (14.333) for Team USA, while adding scores on pommel horse (13.400), rings (13.400) and high bar (11.000). "
The Nebraska men’s gymnastics team swept the conference accolades this week, as Taylor Christopulos, Chase Mondi and "named the Big Ten Gymnast of the Week, Mondi earned his second Big Ten Freshman award, and Zac Tiderman collected Big Ten Specialist accolades, announced by the conference Monday afternoon.

Christopulos’ accomplishments feature an impressive performance on floor, earning him the event title and registering a new career-high score of 14.75 on the event, only .10 below the Nebraska individual record set in 2017 by former Husker Austin Epperson. Christopulos also helped the squad set a new season-best team score on the floor exercise (70.800), beating out last season's record. The captain also competed on pommel horse where he put up a 13.20. On vault, the Layton, Utah native, collected a new season-best of 14.85, taking second place overall and helped the Big Red secure a new season-best team score on vault.

Mondi had a stand out performance where he competed on floor and secured a 13.80, just one-tenth below his career-best and good for sixth place. The freshman helped the Huskers earn a season-best team score on the floor exercise (70.800), surpassing last season's mark. On vault, the freshman notably made a historic impact after setting a new career-best (14.85) and completing a Kaz double full on vault, being the first Husker to complete this skill on vault in Nebraska school history. Mondi tied teammate Christopulos for a strong second-place finish and helped NU set a season-best team score on vault (72.300).

"Freshman Chase Mondi, the first Husker ever to perform the Kaz double full vaulting was an amazing feat," Head Coach Chuck Chmelka said. "There’s only a handful of people in the world doing this vault and we’re fortunate to have one of those guys and he’s only a freshman."

Tiderman highlighted his craft after setting another historic, record-breaking performance by breaking a Nebraska school record on high bar after scoring a new career-best 14.65, good for the event title. The record was previously set by Anton Stephenson in 2018 with a 14.60. The Wilsonville, Ore., native helped the Huskers set a new season-best team score on high bar (70.100), surpassing the Huskers’ previous top score in 2023. Tiderman also impressed on vault after registering a 14.75, good for fourth overall. "

"The No. 5 Nebraska Cornhuskers were named Regular-Season Big Ten Champions for the first time in program history since entering the Big Ten in 2011 after taking the win against No. 7 Ohio State Buckeyes (418.200-414.150). Nebraska shares the conference champions title with Illinois, both earning a 3-1 record in the conference regular-season competition. This win for the Huskers ranks as a top-three overall team score in Nebraska program history (418.200), not far behind the top-two team scores, previously set back in 2017.

The Huskers collected a total of 19 personal-best scores this afternoon, along with setting a new program record-high team score on pommel horse (71.70). Two Huskers walked away as event titlests, including Luke James with a personal record on floor (14.75) and Sam Phillips with a personal record on high bar (14.30)."
Confusing. They are the regular season B1G champs yet share the conference regular season champs title with Illinois. Whatever, congrats to the team for a wonderful season.
