Softball team looks to sweep UMKC
By Derek Samson
The Nebraska softball team has
lost 21 times this year.
Sixteen of those losses have come
at the hands of an opponent ranked in

all over the oppor
tunity of playing a weaker opponent.
“We’ve played a very tough sched

rated teams, our record certainly
wouldn’t be what it is,” Revelle said.

The Nebraska baseball team
took both ends ofa doublehcader
from Kansas State at Manhat
tan, Kan., Wednesday.
The Huskers, 21-16, ex
ploded for 29 total runs as they
beat Kansas State 14-4 and 15
David Crain belted two home
runs in the first game.
“These two arc extremely important.
It’s an opportunity that we feel like we
should, and we can, get a sweep. Any
thing less than a sweep will be a
The Huskers don’t just need a
sweep, Rcvelle said. They need to
develop a different attitude.
“We need to have a little more of a
killer instinct,” Revelle said. “When
you have someone on the ropes, you
have to put them away. When you’re
down, you have to fight, scratch and
claw your way to get back up.
“Having that kind of intensity is
something where we’ve been slip
ping. Hopefully, we can change that.”
Nebraska’s contest with UMK.C
also will serve as a warm-up for the
Huskers’ four games with third-ranked
Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Okla.
Revelle said tonight’s games took
on an added importance after
Monday’s doublehcader with
Creighton was rained out.
I ininK 11 S really uuyuiiaui wiai
we get these games in,” she said.
“First of all, I don’t want to go a whole
week without playing and then have
to go to Oklahoma State. Secondly, I
think that we definitely have the edge
(against UMKC), and at this point we
need to get some wins.”
Revclle said she hoped her team
received its wake-up call last week
against Northern Iowa, another team
the Huskcrs were expected to sweep.
After rolling to a 8-0 victory in the
first game, Nebraska was creamed 7
0 in the second game and was denied
“I think this is similar to Northern
Iowa, but if you look at our roster you
see how young wc are,” Revelle said.
“If you look at the fact that Melanie
(Raimondi), a freshman, has pitched
in 24 of our 34 games, you see how
young we arc. There are a lot of expe
riences we’ve gone through, and hope
fully, we’ve learned from them.”
