Loois Klein’s debut season in collegiate gymnastics took the competition by surprise. Descibed as the Huskers’ “secret weapon” coming into 2013, the sophomore made big impacts on five events throughout the season.
Maintaining fairly consistant scores throughout the season, Klein finished off his premier regular season with a record-breaking performance on floor. He earned a 15.60, breaking the school record set by teammate Grant Perdue in 2012.
The Utica, Mich., native’s success continued in the postseason, being one of only three Huskers to make the individual finals at the Big Ten Championships.
Klein earned a silver medal on high bar and earn second-team All-Big Ten honors.
