Following close behind, junior Raquel Orozco also landed in the top five, taking fifth place with her average of 211.4. Their performances landed them both a spot on the All-Tournament Team.
“As with every week, formats are not designed to reward the team doing the best,” Head Coach Bill Straub said, “At every final match, previous scores are discarded and the tournament starts over. Fortunately, we have had plenty of experience with that issue when a loss did not result. Today we missed. Now it is on to next week with a splendidly talented Husker team.”
The Huskers will return to the lanes next Friday through Sunday at the Warhawk Classic in Milwaukee, Wis.
