A strong Tulsa tennis team was

the region, followed a format that had

Freshmen Danica Hardy and
Ndali Ijomah both advanced
through the pre-qualifying rounds
into the 64-player qualifying round.
“Danica and Ndali both played
with a high level of confidence for
freshmen,” Jacobson said.
Ijomah’s confidence enabled
her to defeat Andra Wilcox of New
Mexico 6-1, 6-0 in the first round
of the qualifying bracket. She fell
in the second round 6-0, 6-3 to

She played in all 34 matches and
amassed 153 total blocks, ranking
fourth in the Big 12.
The 1997 season, however, has
beer a littfertteky for Ihuke.
She hasn’t played nearly as much
as a year ago, only 58 of 77 games,
and at times she has been frustrated
with her play.
“This is the biggest roller coaster
year of my life, and I just want to get
off it,” Tauke said. “I played pretty
well early, and then hyper-extended
my knee, nothing serious, at Texas.
But I have to put my fear aside, trust
myself and play.”
Tauke has worked hard to be
more of a offensive threat. Early in
the season, Tauke surprised then-No.

high 11 kills on Sept. 19.
Tauke is second on the team with
a .295 hitting percentage, and third in
solo blocks (1.19 per game).

people to know that I can get the ball

Nebraska has lost four of its past
seven matches, and in the midst of it
Tauke said the most important thing
for the Huskers to do is get excited.
“We have a great opportunity to
get to the Final Four,” Tauke said.
“All we have to do is trust ourselves,
and go out and get ugly. Get nuts.” .
Getting nuts, according to Taulce!
consists of playing to win instead of
trying not to lose, somethin !she
believes NU did early in the year.
Tauke won’t be disappointed if
the Huskers don’t win die national
title, but she just wants to see the
team return to its original form,

whole team feels it, but I guess I’m
the only one that really needs it”
NU middle blocker Tonia lau&c,
who led Nebraska with four blocks
Saturday against OU, said a sense of
urgency did not immediately follow
injuries to key players Jaime
Krondak and Renee Saunders.
“When the losses started, there
was no immediacy,” Tauke said.
“There was no motivation. Losing
was not the end of the world, and it
should have been.
“We weren’t really in any kind of
a rhythm. We were starting in a dif
ferent rotation all the time, and it was
hard not knowing what would hap
pen. But now we are staying with
something. We’re going with it and
we’re believing in it”
The Huskers have settled into a
new starting lineup, moving Reitsma
to the middle, starting freshman
Nancy Meendering at the right side
and inserting Angie Oxley into the
rotation for Krondak.
With the new lineup, Tauke said
the Huskers are building trust and
chemistry, two intangibles they lost

“The Oklahoma match did a lot
for us,” Reitsma said. “This whole
thing has been frustrating, but I think
we’ll surprise people. We haven’t

and I think we’ll be playing our best
in a few weeks. No one is going toibd
expecting us to do well. Everything
could work to our advantage.” i| |i}
NU Coach Terry Pettit does not
expect outside hitter Jaime Krondak
to be 100 percent any time soon.
“It will take nothing short of a
miracle for Krondak to travel with us
