Run it Back: VERT Challenge Takeaways

August 26, 2018

The 2018 Nebraska volleyball team made its debut against a pair or top-20 opponents this weekend at the VERT Challenge. The Huskers lost to No. 7 Florida on opening night before bouncing back against No. 18 Oregon on Saturday, and this weekend provided a tremendous learning opportunity for the young Huskers.

The Huskers went 0-2 in the VERT Challenge to start last season. They went 2-0 in 2016 and 1-1 in 2015, the tournament’s first year. Coach John Cook said heading into the weekend he wasn’t focused on the results; he just wanted to see his team play hard and play together.
