Two members of the Nebraska women’s gymnastics team earned a total of five regular season All-American awards from the National Collegiate Gymnastic Coaches Association (NACGC/W) on Tuesday. Jessie DeZiel and Emily Wong both captured honors for their performances throughout the Huskers’ 2014 campaign.

Wong led NU collecting four total All-America honors with two first-team awards on floor and the all-around as well as two second-team selections on bars and beam. DeZiel picked up second-team honors on vault.

The 2014 Big Ten Gymnast of the year, Wong is the nation’s No. 4 all-around gymnast with a regional qualifying score (RQS) of 39.585. She is also ranked in the top-15 on bars (9.915), beam (9.900) and floor (9.945). Wong earned her career-high score on floor last weekend at the Big Ten Championships posting a perfect 10.00 to become only the second Nebraska gymnast to record a 10.00 on the event behind Richelle Simpson.  

Nationally, DeZiel ranks 19th in the all-around, holding an RQS of 39.360 while also adding a ninth-place slot on vault (9.935). She took home second-team All-America honors on vault for her regular-season efforts notching a score of 9.975 twice during the year. DeZiel finished third on vault at the 2014 Big Ten Championships with a 9.925 mark.

This is the second season the NACGC/Q has awarded regular season All-America honors. Gymnasts were chosen based on their RQS entering NCAA Regional competition. The top eight ranked gymnastics in each event and in the all-around earned first-team awards, while second-team honors were granted to those ranked ninth to 16th. All ties between gymnasts stood.
