2019 (Season Outlook)
Joshua Everitt looks to bounce back from an injury that sidelined him for the majority of his junior season and compete for a spot in the still rings lineup for the Huskers. The Tuscon, Ariz., expects to play a regular role in Nebraska's still rings lineup as a senior, despite only competing four times as a junior. He will also compete for spots on floor and vault in 2019.

2018 (Junior)
Despite being injured for the majority of the season, Everitt competed in four meets on still rings, posting a season high of 13.15 at the Arnold Classic. Everitt continued to be a leader in the classroom and in the community, after earning Academic All-Big Ten honors in 2018. Everitt claimed spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters of 2017-18 and is also a four-time member of the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.

2018 Season Highs

  • Still Rings - 13.15 (at Arnold Classic, March 3, 2018)

2017 (Sophomore)
Everitt only competed one time for the Huskers before being sidelined with an injury for the remainder of the season. He scored a 13.60 on still rings for the Huskers in the first meet of the season. Despite being out of competition, Everitt supported the team in the classroom and in the community. He was a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar, an Academic All-Big Ten choice, and he claimed spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters of 2016-17. He was also a member of the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team. 

2017 Season Highs

  • Still Rings - 13.60 (at West Point Open, Jan. 13, 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 (Freshman)
Everitt got his first taste of collegiate gymnastics in 2016 after competing seven times for the Huskers. He specialized on the still rings as a redshirt freshman, earning a career-best score of 14.45 against Iowa and Penn State on Feb. 27.

Everitt competed in the postseason as well for the Huskers. At the Big Ten Championships, he notched his third-best score of the season on still rings (14.20). At the NCAA Championships, Everitt posted a 13.85 on still rings and helped the Huskers to a seventh-place team finish - it's best finish since 1999.

In the classroom and in the community, Everitt made an impact, earning a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in both the fall and spring semsters and earning Academic All-Big Ten. Additionally, Everitt was named a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and a CGA First-Team All-America Scholar Athlete.
