Nebraska softball won two and lost two at the Shirley Clements Mewborn Field at the ACC Challenge in Atlanta and finished with a 5-4 record.
The season started with a 6-11 defeat by New Mexico State on Feb. 6. After the first loss of the season, Nebraska came back to win three in a row — two against The University of Texas at El Paso and one against Bradley University. Nebraska’s second loss came from Arkansas, with a final score of 4-15. Nebraka’s second win against UTEP helped head coach Rhonda Revelle achieve 1,000 career wins.
“It was a great feeling for us,” pitcher Courtney Wallace said. “To accomplish that for Coach Revelle. We went into the game the same way we did the day before, which was a win.”
In the ACC Challenge, Nebraska took on Georgia Tech on Friday winning 4-2. Then, on Saturday, Nebraska took on Boston College and won 5-2 before taking on Georgia Tech again in a doubleheader 30 minutes after the conclusion of the Boston College game and lost 1-7. To end the challenge, Nebraska took on Boston College for the second time on Sunday and lost 0-2.
