The UNO softball team ended a road trip to South Carolina and the Coastal Carolina Invitational taking two of three over the weekend. The Mavericks defeated St. Peter's 7-1 and lost to Coastal Carolina 5-0 on Friday, then defeated Dartmouth 5-1 on Saturday.
Like every other sport on campus, the men's and women's golf teams have had a rough go of getting the weather to cooperate in 2013. But unlike every sport on campus, it makes that much more of a difference when success is based on getting practice time outside in the elements.
The echoes of the shotgun blasts ricocheted off the overcast skies at Harry A. Koch Trap and Skeet Range. A slight drizzle wasn't enough to stop members from the UNO trap and skeet team from showing off their skills last Thursday.
Coming into the weekend the goal for the UNO hockey team was simple - earn two points and grab home ice for the WCHA playoffs.
Women's basketball left the Sapp Fieldhouse Saturday afternoon, heads hung low, disappointed in their performance after a 74-64 loss to conference leader South Dakota State. The loss marked just the third time all year an opponent had come into Omaha and won on the Mavericks' home court.
Before Saturday, UNO had a 10-2 mark at home and was in the midst of a five-game home winning streak. But a 22-7 run over the final 9:16 of the first half turned a three-point Jackrabbit lead into a 15-point lead by halftime. UNO came within nine points twice in the second half but never really recovered from SDSU's big run.
