Huskers Fall to Texas A&M in Quarterfinals

By NU Athletic Communications

Waco, Texas—The Nebraska women’s tennis team fell by a score of 0-4 to Texas A&M on Friday afternoon at the Big 12 Championship. The No. 38 Huskers (20-7, 7-4 Big 12) battled the No. 30 Aggies (15-7, 7-4 Big 12) much closer than in their previous regular season match-up, but couldn’t seal the deal in the quarterfinal dual.

“I thought the kids fought hard; A&M was just too strong for us today,” Head Coach Scott Jacobson said. “It was definitely a bit more competitive match than the first time around. Fight hard, that is all you can ask of your kids, and whatever the outcome is, it is.”

The Huskers battled close with the Aggies in doubles action, but Texas A&M proved too much for NU to handle. Texas A&M picked up their first win at the No. 1 position, then tacked on the point-clinching victory in No. 2 doubles to take a 1-0 lead in the dual.

The Aggies picked up three additional victories to put the final margin at 4-0. Christi Potgieter (TAMU) downed Janine Weinreich (NU) at the No. 4 position, 6-1, 6-3. Patricia Veresova (NU) was next to fall, dropping the No. 2 singles match to No. 98 Morgan Frank (TAMU), 6-3, 6-3. The dual ended with Jennifer Holmberg’s (NU) loss to Janelle Cuthbertson (TAMU) in No. 5 singles, 6-3, 6-3.

The Huskers will now wait to hear if they have qualified for postseason action. The NCAA will announce selections for the championship tournament on Tuesday, May 3 at 5 p.m. on NCAA.com.
