NU women take down Penn State

Lincoln — The No. 9 Nebraska women’s team used a pair of top-two finishes in the all-around competition and stellar efforts from several veterans to down Penn State 197.175-195.150 Sunday at the Devaney Center in front of 2,189.

The Huskers (4-1, 4-1 Big Ten) posted their best team effort of the season, including season-best marks on vault (49.375) and floor (49.275).

“I’m proud of the whole team,” coach Dan Kendig said. “We had great efforts on vault, floor and we saw some really good things on bars. I like where we’re going on beam as well. We’ve still got some work to do and I know we can still get better.”

Jessie DeZiel led the way for NU, tying for the event titles on vault (9.925) and floor (9.925) en route to her best all-around score of the season (39.525). Emily Wong wasn’t far behind in second with a 39.500, including a tie for the floor title (9.925) and a third-place finish on vault (9.925).

Janelle Giblin won the title on bars (9.95), Jennifer Lauer won the beam (9.875) crown and Brittany Skinner wrapped up the event title sweep for the Huskers by tying for top honors on vault (9.925).

NU hits the road for the third time this season, facing No. 13 Arizona at 5 p.m. Saturday.
