Johnson Takes Second at Track Kat Klash

By NU Athletic Communications

The Nebraska bowling team finished fourth at the inaugural Track Kat Klash, hosted by Sam Houston Stat Dec. 2-4. NU's Kayla Johnson rolled her way to a 235.2 average over a five-game span to finish second individually and earn a spot on the all-tournament team.

Yan Ling finished 10th in the individual standings with a 1,049 pinfall over five games for a 209.8 average. The team's total pinfall of 8,995 over 10 games was 315 behind tournament winner Arkansas State. Vanderbilt finished third and Sam Houston State finished as the tournament runner-up.

Nebraska finished 9-4 overall on the tournament and 1-2 in Sunday's seeded baker matches. As the No. 4 seed, Nebraska defeated Vanderbilt in Sunday's first-round match, 4-3. The Huskers then dropped back-to-back matches against Arkansas State and Vanderbilt, respectively.

Saturday's action saw Nebraska go 4-1 in traditional matches. The Huskers defeated Grambling (1,005-888), Stephen F. Austin (1,011-894), Long Island (1,040-952) and Louisiana Tech (1,095-960). NU's lone loss to Vanderbilt was by just eight pins, 988-980.

With the first semester of competition wrapped up, the Huskers will enjoy the holidays before returning to the lanes Jan. 13-15 at the Mid-Winter Classic in Jonesboro, Ark.
