2007-08 Season Outlook
Audrey Kruse made a commitment to the Husker diving program to walk on in 2007-08. Her presence is important, as she is one of just four NU divers this season. Kruse did not compete in high school diving, but brings experience as a five-time South Dakota state gymnastics qualifier.
Kruse was a South Dakota state qualifier in gymnastics, placing in the top 10 in at least two events every year. She left her mark at Lincoln High School, finishing in the all-time top five on the balance beam, uneven bars, floor excercise and all-around competition. At the club level, Kruse competed for All American Gymnastics Academy, winning the level 7 and level 8 state all-around competitions. She was an academic all-conference selection, a member of National Honor Society and named to South Dakota's "Top Women in Sports" in 2006 for her accomplishments in gymnastics, track and field and cheerleading.
Audrey is the daughter of Duane and Denise Kruse and was born on Sept. 9, 1987 in Sioux Falls, S.D. She has three brothers, Adam, Tyler and Maxwell, and two sisters, Carly and Molly. Carly, her twin sister, is a swimmer at Grinell (Iowa) College. Audree is majoring in biology at Nebraska.
