Huskers Finish Second at Morgan State Invitational

By NU Athletic Communications
The Nebraska bowling team finished in second-place at the Morgan State Invitational held in Baltimore, Md., from Feb. 17-19. The Huskers navigated the field of 23 teams, but fell just short of tournament champion Fairleigh Dickinson in the baker-style finals. The Huskers fell to the Knights, 4-2.

Though the Huskers fell to the Knights, NU compiled the best team-record of the event, earning ten wins to just one loss. The Huskers reached the finals with a 4-2 victory over the Commodores of Vanderbilt in Sunday morning's first of two matches.

Individually, two Huskers were represented on the ten-person All-Tournament squad, in Kayla Johnson and Valerie Calberry. Johnson finished the Morgan State Invite seventh-individually with a 216 average. Calberry followed Johnson with an eighth-place finish and a 214 average.

"This was an excellent performance for our kids," Nebraska Head Coach Bill Straub said. "The future is bright for this team."

The Huskers will now have just under a month until traveling to Nashville, Tenn., for the Music City Classic, held March 16-18.
