Lincoln - The No. 10 Nebraska men’s gymnastics team topped No. 11 Air Force 343.000-334.400 at the Bob Devaney Sports Center Sunday.
Four Huskers captured individual event crowns on the afternoon, helping Nebraska notch a season-high 343.000 team total. Sophomore Andreas Hofer led NU's hardware haul with his first two titles of the season. Hofer won the individual all-around crown with a season-high 85.450, which included victories on floor exercise (14.750) and high bar (14.450).
Senior All-American Anthony Ingrelli claimed his second straight title with a 14.450 on still rings. Freshman Eric Schryver captured the event title of his career with a 14.900 on pommel horse, while Bear Danley added a parallel bars crown with a 14.500.
Air Force's Ben Zaiser claimed the Falcon's lone event win of the day on vault with a 15.600.
Nebraska started the day on floor, where they totaled a 57.100, including Hofer's 14.750 to win the event. NU moved to pommel horse where Schryver's career-high 14.900 led NU to a 54.450 event score, while fellow freshman Wyatt Aycock added a career-high 14.150 on the event on his way to a career-high 83.40 in his first career all-around competition.
