Nebraska Softball Extends Winning Streak to 15 with Doubleheader Sweep of Iowa

The Nebraska Softball team extended its winning streak to 15 with a doubleheader sweep of Iowa on Tuesday. The Lady Huskers rolled over Iowa in game one 14-0 in five innings. Nebraska pounded out 14 hits as every starter for the Big Red recorded a hit with Cam Ybarra, Mya Felder, Abbie Squier and Ava Bredwell all had two hits. Bredwell also led the Huskers with a career-high five RBIs, notching a single and a bases-clearing triple. In the circle, Courtney Wallace (12-5) earned the win, pitching three innings and holding the Hawkeyes to one hit.

In game two, the game was halted in the middle of the sixth inning with the Huskers lead 8-6, but could not be resumed and the score reverted back to the last completed inning. Therefore, the final will go in the books as an 8-3 five inning victory. Through five innings, Sydney Gray led the Big Red going 3-for-4 with one RBI. Cam Ybarra, Ava Bredwell and Mya Felder all added two hits while Brooke and Billie Andrews each notched a homer. In the circle, Courtney Wallace recorded her second win of the day to move to 13-4 on the season. Wallace pitched five innings, recording four strikeouts while giving up six hits.

Nebraska is now 30-9 on the season and is still undefeated in Big Ten Conference play at 10-0.

The Huskers remain at Bowlin Stadium this weekend, April 15-17 for a three-game series against Minnesota.
