A transition to Division-1 typically is a hard time for a program- try telling that to the University of Nebraska at Omaha baseball team.
With a draw of 4,578 people Friday UNO got off to a poor start, allowing the first two goals in the game and trailing 5-2 in the second period. UNO allowed two goals while they had a power play advantage.
In the first round of what promises to be a budding cross-town rivalry, UNO took the first shot and defeated Creighton 3-2 before 4,224 at TD Ameritrade Park Tuesday evening. Playing in Omaha for just the second time all season, the Mavs rode strong pitching performances from starter Matt Tew and reliever Curtis Smith to get the win.
Rose Shires and the UNO volleyball team are no different than any other team on campus. The youth of the team is going to force freshmen on the floor in order to make a starting lineup.
An emotional five-set loss to Fort Wayne on Friday drained UNO and the Mavs had little left in the tank for Saturday, losing to Oakland in four sets.
The decision to recommend reclassifying UNO to Division I athletics to the Board of Regents was based on financial sustainability, said UNO Chancellor John Christensen. The proposed move would eliminate football and wrestling.
