2014 • Senior Season Emily Wong cemented her position as one of the nation’s top all-around student athletes in the country. She recorded one of the best senior seasons by a Nebraska gymnast in school history. Through the regular-season, Wong captured 32 event titles, remained undefeated in the all-around and posted some of the top scores in the country. Her momentum inspired the entire Nebraska gymnastics team to one of the best starts to a season since 1997 by going 5-0.
Wong took home three All-America honors at the 2014 NCAA Championships to give her 11 total honors to tie with Emily Parsons and Heather Brink for the most in school history. In semifinals, Wong put up a 39.525 all-around score to finish fifth overall. On floor, Wong performed her famous routine one last time at the event finals notching a 9.90 mark and finished in ninth, while also adding a 14 place finish on beam.
At the conference level she earned Big Ten Gymnast of the Week five times and at the Big Ten Championships where she collected two career-high scores on beam (9.95) and floor posting a perfect 10.00. Wong is only the second Husker gymnast to record a 10.00 on the event behind Richelle Simpson. She was awarded Big Ten Gymnast of the Year after the meet for her efforts during the season. She took home her 10th all-around crown at the 2014 NCAA Seattle Regional by delivering a notable performance. She tallied a career-high 9.95 on bars and 9.90 on floor to notch both event titles en-route to the all-around crown (39.625).
Wong continued to stockpile honors both in the gym and the classroom in 2014, as she was selected as Nebraska’s Female Student-Athlete of the Year and a Honda Award Finalist. Wong became the second Nebraska gymnast presented with the AAI American Award, an honor annually given to the nation’s top gymnast on the basis of athleticism, academic excellence and civic responsibility. Wong was also awarded the Big Ten Medal of honor and Big Ten Wayne Duke Postgraduate Scholarship. In July, Wong added her second CoSIDA Academic All-America honor being named to the first-team.
She closed out her Husker career as an 11-time All-American with 77 event titles, holds the Nebraska floor record with Richelle Simpson and captured the highest award given to a gymnast in the AAI Award.
2013 • Junior Season An eight-time All-American in competition and a CoSIDA Academic All-American in the classroom, Emily Wong cemented her position as one of the nation’s top all-around student-athletes in 2013.
A four-time All-American as a junior, Wong tied for third nationally in the all-around at the 2013 NCAA Championships with a score of 39.525. Her outstanding performance at the national championships included first-team All-America accolades on vault, floor and in the all-around and second-team laurels on beam. Her work on vault and floor earned her two spots in the NCAA event finals, where she finished third on floor (9.9125) and 10th on vault (9.8833).
Wong's eight career All-America awards ranks fourth all-time at Nebraska. Her four awards at the 2013 championship meet were the most in a single season for any Husker since Emily Parsons captured four honors in 2005.
Wong snagged a total of 24 titles in 2013, including seven in the all-around. Her regular season efforts resulted in two Big Ten Gymnast or Co-Gymnast of the Week honors alongside first-team All-Big Ten accolades. She also captured NACGC/W first-team All-America laurels on bars, beam, floor and in the all-around.
Wong saved her finest performance of the season for the Big Ten Championships, winning the all-around for the second consecutive year with a career-high 39.725. She became the first Big Ten gymnast to win back-to-back conference all-around titles since Penn State’s Brandi Personett (2007-08). Wong was also the conference champion or co-champion on floor, beam and bars and earned four All-Big Ten Championship Team awards. In just two seasons, Wong now owns seven Big Ten titles and eight championship team honors.
She followed by finishing second in the all-around at the NCAA Morgantown Regional with a 39.225, including a meet-best and career-high 9.95 on vault. Her performance enabled her to qualify for the NCAA Championships as an individual in all-around competition.
In the classroom, Wong captured second-team CoSIDA Academic All-America honors, while claiming academic All-Big Ten accolades as a junior.
2012 • Sophomore Season Wong put together another stellar season in her sophomore campaign at Nebraska, capturing first-team All-America honors on beam and adding second-team accolades on floor and in all-around competition at the NCAA Championships in Duluth, Ga. Wong also qualified for the beam finals at the NCAA Championships, posting a score of 9.825 to finish tenth.
Wong saved one of her finest performances of the year for the conference championship, winning titles on beam (9.900) and floor (9.900) and earning Nebraska's first Big Ten Championship individual all-around title (39.600). She was an All-Big Ten championship team selection on vault, beam, floor and all-around, adding to her first team All-Big Ten honors and Academic All-Big Ten honors.
Wong competed in the all-around 12 times throughout the 2012 season, earning two individual all-around titles while tacking on an additional five titles on beam, three on floor and one each on bars and vault. Her top all-around performance of the year came against top-ranked Florida on March 4, where the Grand Forks, N.D. native posted a score of 39.750 to win the all-around title.
2011 • Freshman Season Emily Wong capped an impressive freshman season by claiming first-team All-America honors on bars at the 2011 NCAA Championships. Wong's score of 9.875 in the semifinals helped the Huskers advance to the NCAA Super Six Team Finals. NU took fourth at the Super Six, thanks in part to Wong's 9.90 on bars. She added an 11th-place finish at the Event Finals with an average of 9.8125.
Wong notched four event titles on the season, including three on bars and one on beam. She posted a 9.90 on beam at the Big 12 Championships, tying for third and earning All-Big 12 Championship Team honors. She tallied career highs of 9.90 on bars, 9.90 on beam and 9.875 on floor as a freshman.
