Coach ‘ecstatic’ I
Women nip Oklahoma in tennis
By Jeff Singer
Staff Reporter
While this weekend’s cold weather
didn't cool off the rackets of the
Nebraska women’s tennis team, it
helped keep the men’s tennis team’s
rackets frigid in the last home Big
Eight matches for both teams.
The women Comhuskcrs pulled
off the biggest upset in conference
play thus far by beating Oklahoma 5
4 on Sunday at Woods Tennis Center.
The win capped a 1-1 weekend for
Nebraska after it lost 6-3 to Okla
homa State on Saturday.
In Sunday's surprise, the Huskcrs
were down 1-2 in doubles play to the
Sooncrs before rebounding to win
four of six singles matches to pull off
the shocker.
Nebraska coach Scott Jacobson said
netting the win over Oklahoma was a
“I’m ecstatic. This shows we’re a
program with a group of kids that is
consistently getting better,” Jacob
son said.
Nebraska senior Rachel Collins,
who won at No. 4 singles 6-2, 6-0,
said the win was special since it was
her last match in Lincoln.
“Since I’ve been here we’ve never
beaten Oklahoma, so it’s a good win,”
Collins said. “It was a nice way to
finish and I fed good ending on a
positive note."
Other Husker singles victories came
from No. 3 player Ann Flannery 6-0,
6-3, No. 5 Heidi Junius 7-5,6-0 and
No. 6 Tina Coutrctsis by default.
Coulretsis didn’t need a default in
doubles though, as she and Frauke
Hachtmann beat their Sooner counter
parts at No. 3 doubles 7-5,6-3, assist
ing in the Husker victory.
Jacobson said Sunday’s win should
have a positive effect on his team.
“Psychologically it’s got to help
our team,” Jacobson said. “So much
of this game is confidence, and now I
think they feel that whenever they
step on the court, they can play with
The Huskers improved their over
all record to 5-5 and Big Eight mark
to 2-2 with Sunday’s win.
The men, on the other hand, were
n’t as fortunate as they dropped to 7
10 overall and 1-3 in conference play
by losing to the Oklahoma schools.
Nebraska opened the weekend by
losing 8-1 to Oklahoma State on Sat
urday and followed that effort with a
9-0 blanking at the hands of Okla
homa on Sunday.
The Huskers’ only individual vic
tory over the weekend came at No. 2
doubles against the Cowboys, in which
Oklahoma State defaulted the victory
to Nebraska.
Nebraska coach KetTy McDermott
said he was disappointed with his
team’s desire.
“I can take losing, but not like
this,” McDermott said. “They (the
Oklahoma schools) wanted it worse
than we did and there just wasn’t
enough team spirit out there."
Nebraska No. 1 singles and doubles
player Joseph Rahme agreed with his
‘It’s shocking. The whole OU team
had unity and we didn’t have any,"
Rahme said. “Right now we’re defi
nitely lacking a combination of con
fidence, motivation and team unity.”
Husker freshman Mike Garcia, who
plays at No. 3 singles and No. 2 doubles,
said some positives have come out of
Nebraska’s recent losses.
“Something I’ve learned so far is
that in Big Eights it’s going to be a
battle every time you play, ’ Garcia
said. “We’ve taken a lot of beatings
lately, but we’ve all improved and are
getting a lot better.” •

“Steve was real aggressive,” Sand
ers said. “He performed like he was
capable. He won the matchups.”
While the Oklahoma State power
hitting was dispelled by the wind,
Nebraska used a line drive, running
and bunting game to put its runs on
the board.
The Huskers broke through in the
third inning. Scott McGuire and Dale
Hagy had back-to-back singles to right
field. Sean McKenna was then hit by
a pitch to load the bases. McGuire
scored on a groundout by Jeff Murphy.
Cowboy coach Gary Ward said
Nebraska was the team that came out
ready to play on Sunday. Ward said
he thought the weekend was one that
would be all pitching, and that he was
surprised by the scores of some of the
“I went into every game thinking it
would be 2-1 or 3-2,” Ward said. “If
you can’t pitch in this situation, you
can’t pitch at all.”
