By NU Athletic Communications

The Bob Devaney Sports Center is home to some of the most advanced technology available for the sport of swimming. Movement analyzers, electronic timing and updated weight facilities make the Devaney Center a leader in swimming technology.

The Devaney Center also features a state-of-the-art Daktronics scoreboard and timing system which offers the fans and athletes a friendly atmosphere.

The Devaney Center Natatorium was recently the site of the 2006 Big 12 Relays and is also home to the Husker Invitational and Sprint Challenge. It hosted the Big 12 Relays in 2003 as well and is the annual site of the Nebraska state swimming and diving meet.

The Natatorium also hosted the Husker Invitational in 2007-08 and 2008-09. The four-day, nine-team meet in 2008-09 was the longest and biggest tournament that Nebraska has ever hosted at its home pool. The Huskers are set to host the third annual Husker Invitational in 2009-10.


The 25-yard pool opened in 1976 and offers seating for 1,000 spectators. The diving well includes two one- and three-meter springboards as well as a five-meter platform installed in 1996. New springboards were installed in the spring of 2002.

The Huskers also take advantage of Woods Pool, a 50-meter outdoor training facility equipped with a five-, seven- and 10-meter diving platform.
