2006 Season

Sophomore Ali Lokanc returned to the pitch for the Huskers in 2006 after suffering an injury in her freshman campaign. Lokanc played in 13 games in 2006 and moved into the starting lineup against Oklahoma on Oct. 22 and Loyola-Chicago on Oct. 25.


After a brief absence from the pitch at the start of conference play, Lokanc returned as a forward against Texas A&M on Oct. 13 and nearly kept the Huskers from a shutout when she almost connected on a cross from Brittany Timko in the waning seconds of the match. The 5-10 sophomore earned the first assist of her career in NU's 2-1 loss to Central Michigan on Sept. 15.
