Women's Conference Championships History

By NU Athletic Communications

Nebraska made the move to the Big Ten Conference 2011. The Huskers were a perennial top-five finisher in the Big 12 from 1996 through 2010, ending the year among the league's five best teams on eight occasions

Nebraska captured five Big Eight Conference team crowns, including the 1991 season, when All-American Fran ten Bensel claimed the individual conference championship. In 1997, a sixth-place finish from Amy Wiseman gave NU its highest Big 12 finish when it was runner-up.
