Huskers Sweep Mobile to End BadgerRam Beach Bash

The Nebraska beach volleyball team closed out the BadgerRam Beach Bash on Saturday morning with a 5-0 sweep of the University of Mobile at West Public Beach in Gulf Shores, Ala. 

The Huskers won all five matches, as well as the exhibition, to improve to 7-1 on the season. Five of the six Huskers pairs won their matches in straight sets. 

Next week, Nebraska will travel to Hawaii for six matches in five days. The Huskers will take part in the annual Heineken Queens Cup on Queen's Beach in Honolulu, facing California, Hawaii, Texas, Washington and Oregon on March 10-12. On Tuesday, March 14, the Huskers will battle the Rainbow Wahine one more time at the Ching Complex. 

As the Big Red heads back to the mainland, they'll stop in California for six final matches. The Huskers will play Grossmont and San Diego Mesa in El Cajon, Calif., on March 16, and then they will play Saddleback College and Orange Coast College on March 17 in Irvine, Calif. The Huskers will close out their season on March 18 with a doubleheader against Irvine Valley College and Hope International University, also in Irvine.
