Minnesota vs. Nebraska, 2.13

Nebraska's Evan Hymanson (right) spins on his dismount from the rings as Husker coaches Chuck Chmelka (left) and Jim Hartung look on during a meet against Minnesota on Feb. 13 at the Devaney Sports Center.

The NCAA selected two Husker student-athletes as part of their national distribution of 42 postgraduate scholarships worth $10,000.

Evan Hymanson, a male gymnast, and Abigail Knapton, a diver, both have a long list of academic achievements.

The NCAA annually distributes up to 126 postgraduate scholarships to student-athletes who excel academically and athletically while in their final year of college athletics.

Hymanson has been a four-year standout for the Husker men's gymnastics team, a career highlighted by NU finishing fourth in the NCAA Championships last month under his captaincy.

Knapton became the first diver in school history to earn All-America honors on both the platform and 3-meter dives this past season.
