Huskers Tennis Schedule Announced

The schedule for the 2018-2019 Nebraska women’s tennis season has been released by head coach Scott Jacobson, who will be entering his 28th year as the head coach this fall. The Huskers kick off their 2018-19 slate with three fall tournaments, including trips to Midland, Texas and Minneapolis, Minnesota for weekend duals before heading to Iowa City, Iowa in mid-October for the ITA Central Regionals. The spring season begins January 19 with a nonconference dual against Air Force and conference play starts up on March 16 on the road at Michigan.

Under Jacobson’s leadership, the Huskers had their best season since 2013 last year, going 18-7 (7-4 B1G) and finishing with a No. 46 national ranking. The 2013 season resulted in a 10-1 conference record and a Big Ten Championship for Jacobson’s group. They also advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.

Nebraska will also host the 2019 Big Ten Championships at the Dillon Tennis Center from April 25-28. The top ten teams in conference at the end of the regular season will be invited to the single elimination tournament. Since joining the Big Ten in 2011, Nebraska has never hosted the Big Ten Women’s Tennis Tournament.
