Wong Wins Final Big Ten Gymnast of the Week

Nebraska gymnast Emily Wong won her fifth Big Ten Gymnast of the Week award on Monday, March 17 when the Big Ten Conference announced its last set of weekly awards for the 2014 season. The senior from Grand Forks, ND., won the award five out of the 10 times she was eligible, claiming the honor for the last three straight weeks. Wong finishes her Husker career with seven total Big Ten Gymnast of the Week honors.

Wong fueled the Husker’s to victory in its final regular-season meet this past weekend against Illinois, Michigan State and Ohio State to claim the Big Ten regular-season conference title. Wong finished top-five on every event including first-place finishes on bars (9.925) and floor where she matched her season-high score of 9.95 for the fourth time this season. She finished fourth on both vault (9.875) and beam (9.875) en-route to her ninth consecutive all-around crown (39.625).

The talented senior finished the regular-season as the No. 1 ranked all-arounder in the Big Ten as well as No. 4 in the country with an RQS of 39.585. Wong still remains undefeated in the all-around collecting an incredible nine straight titles. She pulls down national rankings on every individual event including 25th on vault (9.895), eighth on bars (9.915), 14th on beam (9.890) and ninth on floor (9.935).
