Spence wins all-around but Huskers fall to Maryland in gymnastics

  • 0

Luke Mullin and Amie Just discuss Nebraska’s aggressive efforts recruiting both the state of Texas, and the transfer portal. Plus, a check-in on both Husker basketball teams.

Emma Spence won two event titles — and the all-around crown — but Nebraska fell to Maryland 195.875-195.325 in a women's gymnastics dual Saturday at the Devaney Sports Center.

Spence shined in both the floor and vault events, posting a 9.900 in both wins. Spence is a sophomore from Canada who is evolving into one of Nebraska's most reliable players in the lineup.

Maryland pulled away on the beam, where the Terrapins posted the top two scores. Maddie Komoroski led the way with a score of 9.875, followed by Josephine Kogler's 9.850.

Maryland also found separation on the bars, posting the top-two scores in that event. Victoria Gatzendorfer and Elizabeth Debarberie both had 9.800.

Saturday was Nebraska's annual Pink Meet, which attracted a strong crowd to the Devaney Sports Center. 

Other notable Nebraska performances included Clara Colombo's 9.850 on the beam, which tied for second, and Sophia McClelland's 9.850 on the floor, which was good for third.  

Spence edged Maryland's Emma Silberman 39.500-39.000 for the all-around title. 

Nebraska falls to 0-1 in Big Ten action and returns to action with a trip to take on Illinois in a dual on Saturday.
