Huskers Head to Prairie View A&M Invite

By NU Athletic Communications

The Nebraska bowling team will continue its 2012-13 season this weekend at the Prairie View A&M Invite held in Arlington, Texas. Competition begins Friday and will end Sunday morning at the newly renovated International Training and Research Center. This will be the first of two tournaments in back-to-back weekends at the facility for NU.

With two tournaments so close together, Head Coach Bill Straub believes the team has practiced exceptionally well during some off time preparing for two highly competitive tournaments.

“I think the team has practiced great in the last three weeks,” Straub said, “If our team keeps up its intensity they have shown over the past couple of weeks I believe the individual scores will reflect the hard work the team has put in.”

The Huskers will face some stiff competition while in Arlington this weekend, as they face a stout 12-team field. Some teams to note that will be competing are traditional powers Central Missouri, Vanderbilt and Valparaiso.
