Men’s golf team
heads to Indiana
By Sam McKewon
A change in the lineup may
bring better scores to the
Nebraska men’s golf team as it
plays in the Legends of Indiana
Invitational in Indianapolis today
Sophomore Peter Smith will
not play for NU, while junior Scott
Gutschewski will take his place.
Gutschewski finished second in
1 Huskers’ qualifier during the off
week while Smith finished third.
NU coach Larry Romjue said
the change could help the Huskers
contend for the title.

us last year, so we know that he
can play some good golf,” Romjue
said. “Scott can get things going
really well at times.”
The rest of die lineup will stay
the same for the other four spots.
Junior Jamie Rogers will again be
the Huskers’ top golfer and a
major threat to win the tourna
ment, Romjue said. Junior Josh
Madden, junior Steve Friesen and
junior Ryan Nietfeldt round out
the Husker lineup.
Romjue said this is the first
tournament NU will play in that
will feature a large number of
teams from NU’s district region.
Miami (Ohio), Iowa State and
Kansas are three of the six teams
from the central-region district
that will be competing in Indiana.
Nebraska has tied Iowa State
and lost to the Jay hawks this sea
Also included in the tourna
ment is a strong field of Big 10,
Mid-American Conference and
independent schools, including
Michigan, Notre Dame and
Romjue said these tournament
takes on added importance
because of the competition.
“It’s going to be a good field,”
he said. “There’s some teams that
have some talent, and Kansas is
certainly a team that you have to
watch out for. They’ve already
beaten us once, so we know
they’re a good team.” (
The tournament is being
played on the Legends of Indiana
Golf Club, which is a course that
the Huskers have never seen.
Romjue said the courses features
15 lakes and more than 140 haz
ards, which will present some
Romjue said it will be an
adjustment for the Huskers early
in the round.
“We have to keep the ball out
of trouble and stay away from the
really big scores,” Romjue said.
“We’ll takes chances when we
can, but we don’t want to give
away strokes on Monday morn
Another key, as always,
Romjue said, will be the short
“Every one of our guys are
pretty good putters, so we know
we have the capability to have a
good short game,” he said. “We’re
also starting to get into a rhythm
of playing every week, so that’s
helping us out, too.”
Romjue said NU has the play
ers to pull a victory out of the
“The talent for us is there,”
Romjue said. “If we play well, and
eliminate a couple big scorers,
we’ll be up towards the top with a
chance to win.”

we’re comfortable adjusting and
they’re not, it can create some stress
on the other team.”
Moving Reitsma to the middle,
Pettit said, also creates opportunities
for the outside hitters. With Missouri
primarily concerned with defending
Reitsma in the middle, Jaime
Krondak pounded 10 kills and hit
.600, and Mandy Monson recorded
eight kills from die left side.
Overall, Nebraska totaled a .400
nimng percentage, wnne limiting
Missouri to .058. Pettit said Fiona
Nepo - who had 44 assists and four
blocks - was responsible for NU’s
balanced attack, but Nepo credited
the Husker passers.
“It’s really easy to win and have a
good game when my teammates are
passing the ball to me well,” Nepo
Nebraska’s back row accounted
for 43 digs compared to the Tigers’
23. Korver - who posted three ser
vice aces and a .535 hitting percent
age - filled in for the injured Renee
Saunders in the back court, serving
nine consecutive points in the sec
Missouri stole the first point of
the third game when a Reitsma attack
sailed wide. But Nebraska answered
MU’s point with a 13-0 run. The
Tigers scored their final point of the
match on another Reitsma hitting
error, but NU ended the contest when
Korver and Krondak blocked
Maune’s last attack.

ning streak against Missouri to 33

Kansas tried to slow down the
Husker attack by playing four defenders
and trying to draw Nebraska offsides.
Uppinghouse said the Huskers tried to
counter the KU defense by having the
midfielders attack the goal.
“We knew they were looking for the
offsides trap,” Uppinghouse said “Our
plan was to send the midfielders
through and play balls top.”
Defense was again a constant for the
Huskers against Missouri. NU allowed
the Tigers just one shot on goal.
Nebraska senior defenders Tanya
Franck and Stephanie Vacek each had
an assist this weekend to go along with
dominating defensive play.
“We are fortunate that Tanya Franck
and Sharolta Nonen are smart defend
ers,” Nebraska assistant coach Megan
Bechtold said. “They dictate the pace.”
Against Missouri, the Huskers
scored three goals in a span of 5:26 in
the second half. Jenny Benson, a sopho
more striker, scored on a header off an
assist from Franck.
Walker said the effort against MU
was much better than what the team
gave a week earlier against Texas Tech.
“It was more of a typical Nebraska
game,” Walker said after the Missouri
game. “We were committed to attack
ing, but our pressure defensively wore
them down a bit”

scoring at 56-20. With time running
out, Bishop hit Darnell McDonald for a
21-yard score. The two-point conver
sion failed, and the game ended at 56
Osborne said the Nebraska sec
ondary was up to par in the game, but
still wasn’t in top shape.
“It was better, but it wasn’t 100 per
cent,” he said. “(Bishop) completed
eight of 24 passing with two intercep
tions. I couldn’t say he had a great day
passing the ball.”
Bishop passed for 162 yards, but
didn’t have a great day running the ball
either. KSU was held to 98 yards rush
ing on 40 attempts for the game.
Overall, Osborne was impressed
with his team’s performance. He was
extremely impressed with the way
Nebraska ran the ball (379 yards on 60
attempts), and how the defense stopped
“We think we can run the ball
against most people, and we don’t think
many people can run on us,” Osborne
said. “So far this year that has been the
case, and we hope it stays that way.
Somebody may crack us, but so far
Peter said the defense enjoys seeing
and hearing that
“One thing we really take pride in
as a defensive unit is to stop the run,”
Peter said. “If we make them one
dimensional, it’s easier on us.”
Peter said the Nebraska defense’s
biggest weakness is its lack of depth.
The sooner the defensive backups
come along, Peter said, the better
Nebraska will be.
“We have to go back to what we did
last year,” Peter said, “and send those
guys up the stairs.”
