Nebraska Advances to Quarterfinals

By NU Athletic Communications

Waco, Texas—The Nebraska women’s tennis team netted a 4-0 first round victory over Colorado on Thursday to advance to the quarterfinals of the Big 12 Championship. No. 38 Nebraska rises to 20-6 on the season, the second-most wins in a season in NU history.

The Huskers came out firing, capturing two consecutive matches to clinch the doubles point against the Buffaloes. Jennifer Holmberg and Maike Zeppernick (NU) rolled Michala Jensen and Kristina Barber (CU), 8-0 at the No. 3 position to snag Nebraska’s first win. No. 81 Madeleine Geibert and Stefanie Weinstein (NU) wrapped up the doubles point with their 8-3 victory at the No. 1 position over Carla Manzi and Abbie Probert (CU).

Nebraska continued to cruise in singles, capturing three consecutive straight-set victories to clinch their win over No. 12-seeded Colorado. Weinstein struck first in No. 3 singles, defeating Jensen 6-1, 6-1 to give NU a 2-0 lead. Patricia Veresova (NU) added the next win for the Huskers, toppling Probert by a score of 6-1, 6-0 at the No. 2 position. Zeppernick wrapped things up for the Nebraska with her 6-0, 6-2 victory in No. 6 singles that placed the final score at 4-0.

“I thought the intensity in the singles, after the doubles point was really exceptional,” Head Coach Scott Jacobson said. “We came out and won the first 15 games of the singles play and that got us off to a really good start.”

The Huskers advance to tomorrow’s quarterfinals, where they will face No. 30 Texas A&M at 3 p.m. Nebraska has previously faced the Aggies once this season on April 17. NU lost that dual by a score of 2-5.

“A&M is a quality program, 30th in the country,” Jacobson said. “We just need to come out and play with great intensity and tremendous passion.”
