Huskers finish twelfth at Music City Classic


Smyrna, Tennessee – The Nebraska bowling team placed twelfth on the final day of the Music City Classic on Sunday afternoon.

The Huskers pitched best-of-seven baker-style against No. 7 Louisiana Tech and lost 4-0. Nebraska lost the first two games (182-174 and 216-206). The bowlers fought hard in Game 3, but were edged (209-206) and fell in Game 4 (179-172).

In Game 2, Nebraska took on Youngstown St. and lost 4-0. Unlucky shots kept NU from winning the first three games (197-189, 196-176 and 186-172), and even with our improved performances, Youngstown St. won the fourth game (242-190), ending at the match.

Moving on, NU took on Lincoln Memorial but lost 4-3 in an intense seven-round match. The bowlers lost the first three games (207-166, 195-192 and 179-159), but fought back to win the fourth game by a score of 231-215. Nebraska kept pushing and won Game 5 233-158. The Huskers tied the score in Game 6 with a win (181-166), but fell in the final game (211-191).

The Huskers will return to competition April 8-9 for the NCAA Regional Championships.
