The Huskers will face the Denver Pioneers at UNK's Health and Sports Center on Saturday, May 4 at 2 p.m. Doors to the match will open at 12:30 p.m. The Huskers will sign autographs following the match.

The Huskers played their 2017 spring match at Kearney High School but have not played a spring match at UNK's 5,000-seat Health and Sports Center. Kearney Public Schools is the primary host of the event, working in partnership with Nebraska Athletics, UNK and the Kearney Visitors Bureau.

For the third consecutive year, the Huskers' spring match will be televised statewide on Nebraska Public Media and streamed online on B1G+. In addition to television and streaming coverage, the match will air on select Huskers Radio Network affiliates and the official Huskers App.

The trip back to Kearney continues Nebraska’s tradition of touring the state for spring volleyball matches. Since 2007, Nebraska has played spring matches in North Platte, Scottsbluff, Grand Island, Norfolk, Wayne, Ogallala, Kearney and McCook.


Nebraska men’s gymnast and team captain Taylor Christopulos was named Big Ten Gymnast of the Week, announced by the Big Ten Conference Monday afternoon following his performance against Ohio State on Tuesday, March 26. 

Christopulos helped the Huskers win a share of the Big Ten Conference Champions title, in addition to setting a top-three final team score of 418.200 in NU program history. The senior placed sixth on floor (14.05), seventh on pommel horse (13.95), fifth on vault (14.50), sixth on parallel bars, and concluded his performance for the afternoon by landing in third on high bar with a personal-best record of 14.05. 

The Layton, Utah native, also helped the Huskers to set two season-high team scores on both pommel horse and floor, with the team score of 71.700 on pommel horse surpassing Nebraska’s program record by two-tenths, previously set at last meet against Illinois.

Ohio State’s Zach Synder won Big Ten Freshman of the Week, and Ohio State’s Parker Thackston earned Big Ten Event Specialist of the Week.
