After a disappointing loss Saturday to
Midland, the UNL women's volleyball

over UNO this Saturday at 10 a.m. in

Saturday has been designated Parents'
Day, according to Volleyball Caoch Pat

Midland 15-2, 10-15, 14-16. The UNL
junior varsity downed Creighton
University's varsity 15-2, 15-10 Tuesday
and will play the UNL JV Saturday.
"We've been working on picking up
passes, smoother rotation and substitu

A swollen knee has benched starting

Sullivan said, so Nancy Wilkenson has been
moved to the varsity.

out," she said. "She is a strong center

Sullivan predicted. "Midland lust sort of

selves and are used to a team that plays
well, not junky," she said.

two position errors, each costing them the

got discouraged from the errors' and it
hurt our play. I have no doubt that,
without the errors, we wouldn't have lost."
UNO has one left-handed spiker,
Sullivan said, which is not familiar to the
"This Saturday should be our best
match so far," she said. "UNO should play
better than the other teams we've played.
The game will be a bigger challenge.
"we did outscore Midland pcintwise
and aren't really discouraged about the
loss. We're just glad it happened now. The
errors are ones we probably won't make
