2018 (Season Outlook)
As a senior, Connor Adamsick will be looked to for leadership both inside and outside of the gym. Adamsick led the team as its captain last season, helping the Huskers to the NCAA Championship Team Finals for the first time since 1999. After an impressive junior season, Adamsick is expected to play a vital role in the Huskers' floor and vault lineups, after competing in all but one meet for the Huskers on floor and five times for the Huskers on vault, including the NCAA Championship Individual Finals. 

Adamsick has been a top performer in the classroom as well for the Huskers. He's earned Academic All-Big Ten the past three seasons and is a six-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll. He regularly volunteers in the community and is expected to continue to positively represent Nebraska inside and outside the gym.

2017 (Junior)
Adamsick overcame an early-season injury to regularly compete in Nebraska's floor and vault rotations, which proved to be the Huskers' top events in 2017. On vault, NU scored 70.0 or higher in every single meet and at the 2017 NCAA Championship Team Finals, Nebraska scored the highest floor score acros all teams. Adamsick posted season-best scores on floor (14.50), pommel horse (13.05) and vault (14.25). He competed in all but one meet for the Huskers, including the NCAA Championship Individual Team Finals. His highest score came against Minnesota on March 25 where he earned 14.50 on floor, helping NU to a team score of 425.550 - the fourth-highest score in the country. 

In the classroom, Adamsick earned Academic All-Big Ten and a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters of 2016-17. He was a regular volunteer in the community, earning a spot on the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team as well as a junior. Additionally, he earned one of the first-ever Nebraska Sam Foltz Hero 27 Leadership Awards, named after the late Nebraska punter, for his outstanding contributions to the community.

2017 Season Highs

  • Floor - 14.50 (vs. Minnesota, 3/25/17)
  • Pommel Horse - 13.05 (at Minnesota/UMN Club Team, Feb. 4, 2017)
  • Vault - 14.25 (at Iowa, March 20, 2017)

*Scoring changes were made prior to the 2017 season. There are now four different element groups instead of five, meaning that a gymnast can only receive 2.0 instead of 2.5 in that category. This typically lowers scores by .5.

2016 (Sophomore)
Adamsick had a breakthrough season as a sophomore, competing in every meet for Nebraska on floor and appearing occasionally on vault and pommel horse. The Mundelein, Ill., native became one of Nebraska's top performers on floor, while posting career highs on floor (15.00) and vault (14.70).

Adamsick competed in the postseason and advanced to the 2016 NCAA Individual Event Finals on floor for the first time in his career and earned a 14.40 for his performance. Adamsick was originally a walk-on for the Huskers, but earned a scholarship following his impressive sophomore season.

Outside of competition, Adamsick was a star in the classroom, earning Academic All-Big Ten honors for the second consecutive year. He also was named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters of 2015-16.

Adamsick was a huge presence in the community and was recognized for his volunteering efforts, earning the Nebraska Student-Athlete HERO Leadership Award and a spot on the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team in 2016. Additionally, he was a member of Nebraska's Life Skills service trip to the Dominican Republic in May 2016.

Adamsick posted season highs on both floor (13.50) and vault (14.65) at the Rocky Mountain Open. Adamsick also earned a career best on pommel horse at the Minnesota/UIC meet with a score of 11.25 in his first competitive season with the Huskers.
