2014 • Freshman Season 
Jennie Laeng provided a surprising spark in the Husker lineup during the 2014 season. She started her freshman campaign not in a single lineup and finished out the season competing as a three event specialist on vault, bars and beam. In her collegiate gymnastics debut against Michigan Laeng took second place on bars behind Emily Wong hitting a career-high 9.875 and remained in the rotation for the rest of the season. 

Laeng showed her prowess on bars early in the year, as she became one of the Huskers’ most consistent performers on the event by scoring a 9.80 or better seven times throughout the season. In addition, Laeng competed in the all-around competition three times earning her best performance at the Big Ten quad meet of 39.325 to boost the Huskers efforts to claim the Big Ten regular-season Conference Title.

She contributed important floor routines recording her career-high 9.85 against Arkansas on senior night. Laeng capped her freshman season at the Super Six Finals where she notched her career-high 9.90 on beam. In the classroom, she earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor roll in the fall.
