Baseball Drops Home Opener

UNO walked three of the first four BYU batters and allowed the first five hitters to score en route to dropping their first home game of the season 19-9.  The Mavs came back to get within 8-4 but a six-run top of the fifth was more than UNO could withstand.

McCord inks deal with Brewers

 

At the conclusion of senior Colby McCord's UNO career, the Papillion native ranked ninth all time in games played with 163 and served the Mavs at catcher, first base and even put in some time on the mound. In four years McCord posted a career .324 average, homered nine times and knocked in 77 runs.
But Major League Baseball didn't come calling at the three-day draft June 24-26. It took a few extra weeks, but McCord's talent and consistency were eventually recognized.

Mavs fall in MIAA championship

The UNO baseball team clawed its way through the losers' bracket but fell two wins shy of the MIAA tournament championship held May 12 through 15. After an opening round win in Kansas City, the Mavs dropped their next game to Emporia State, then rebounded for two more wins before losing to eventual champion Central Missouri.
