Husker Hit Routine

By NU Athletic Communications

Husker Hit Routine is a fundraiser for the Nebraska Men's Gymnastics team that will collect pledges from individuals, companies, gyms, donors and various other Nebraska Athletics supporters. Pledges will apply to every routine the Huskerteam successfully completes, or "hits", in competition.

A hit routine is a routine where no single skill performed receives 0.8 or more in deduction. If an athlete falls of an apparatus, it is no longer considered a "hit". If an athlete does not fall off during a routine, but gets 0.8 off on any individual skill, it is not a "hit" routine.

The purpose of the "Husker Hit Routine" is to raise money to endow scholarships and further support the Nebraska Men's Gymnastics program. This and other endowed scholarships will help ensure the future of the Men's Gymnastics program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Husker Hit Routine began in 2011 with $2,913 earned through hit routines. In the program's second year, the team hopes to raise $31.50 per hit routine. Based on a projected number of 270 hit routines, this amount per routine would raise $8,505 for the program in 2012.
