Steven M. Sipple, Parker Gabriel and Chris Basnett provide a quick preview of what’s going to be a busy weekend for the Huskers, both on the recruiting front in Lincoln and in the NCAA Baseball Tournament in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Nebraska’s men’s gymnastics team had one of the deepest teams in the nation last season en route to a fourth-place NCAA finish.

It looks like the Huskers will continue to rely on their depth.

Senior captains Jake Bonnay and Zach Peters each announced Monday that they plan to return for the 2022 season, taking advantage of the extra year granted by the NCAA because of COVID-19.

With another strong NCAA showing, Husker gymnasts think they're closing the gap on the big two


Bonnay, who has battled numerous injuries, has been one of the Huskers’ top competitors for four years. The Burlington, Ont., native was limited to floor exercise and high bar last season, but can also score on vault and parallel bars.

He plans to attend a graduate school at NU.

“I and the rest of my team still have a lot to prove and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead next season,” Bonnay wrote on social media.

Peters, a native of Greenwood, Indiana, was hampered by injuries and was limited to one meeting last season.

“Not being able to compete for the past year and a half has been one of the hardest things I’ve had to overcome both mentally and physically,” Peters wrote on social media. “It’s worth knowing now that I can compete and with such an incredible team by my side.”
