Nebraska entered Sunday's final round as the three-seed and was paired with four-seed Fairleigh Dickinson in the first match of the day. The Huskers were able to find a way to take care of business against FDU, winning the match, 4-2. Nebraska then swept the two seed, Central Missouri, 4-0. The Huskers then faced off with top-seeded Arkansas State in the bracketed finals to determine the event's winner. The match went all seven games, with Nebraska overpowering the Red Wolves in the end, 4-3.

Kristi Mickelson earned a first-place finish individually and the event's MVP award during Saturday's competition. Mickelson shot games of 185, 188, 258, 235, 238 and 234 for a 223 average and 1,338 total pinfall through the event's six traditional games.

Nebraska set a blistering pace on Saturday, going 6-0 in team games on the afternoon and 13-2 overall to set up Sunday's tournament title.
