2018 (Season Outlook)
Evan Hymanson made an immediate impact as a freshman and is one of few underclassmen with significant experience in the gym heading into the 2018 season. His experience includes the postseason as he competed at the Big Ten Championships and the NCAA Championships Qualifiers and Finals in 2017.

A native of Marlboro, N.J., Hymanson competed in every meet for the Huskers on parallel bars and is expected to continue appearing on that event as a sophomore. He also saw some action on high bar, floor and still rings and looks to compete for a spot in those lineups as well as a sophomore. 

This summer, Hymanson will represent the Huskers as part of the 1.200 USA team traveling to the 20th annual Maccabi Games in Israel in July.

Hymanson is also expected to make significant contributions in the classroom for the Huskers, as a four-time USA Gymnastics First-Team Scholastic All-American (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016) and a two-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll. 

2017 (Freshman)
Hymanson found his way into the regular lineups right away in his first year at Nebraska.  He was one of two freshmen to regularly compete for the Huskers. Hymanson competed in every meet on parallel bars, notching a season-best score of 14.20 against Minnesota on March 25.  He also saw some action on high bar, appearing six times and competed once on floor and still rings. He competed at the Big Ten Championships and NCAA Championships, helping the team to a fifth-place conference finish and a sixth-place national finish. He was rewarded by his coaches and teammates at the annual end-of-the-year banquet, earning the Newcomer of the Year Award. 

Hymanson was also one of two Huskers to qualify for the Winter Cup in Las Vegas, Nev., and qualified for the Maccabi Games in July 2017. 

Outside of the gym, Hymanson earned spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters of 2016-17. He also was named to the Tom Osborne Citizenship team for his leadership in the community.
