Despite not being eligible for post-season play, the UNO men's and women's basketball teams picked up awards last week when several members received All-Independent Honors. Four members of the men's team, and three members of the women's team, were named to the 2012 Independent Basketball All-Conference Teams by College Sports Madness.
Sami Spenner of the UNO women's track team was named the Summit League Woman
Athlete of the week last week for the third time in a row. It's also the fourth time Spenner has received the award this year.
It's a surprising feat, until one learns she almost qualified for the U.S. Olympic trials last summer and is one of the best athletes in all of Division I Track.
Spenner's continued success this season, after what she accomplished last year, has proven
to many just how exceptional of an athlete she truly is.
UNO's wrestlers ended the program on a high note, capturing the program's seventh Division II title.
