It was a historic home opener for the 14th-ranked Nebraska softball team in a 14-0 five-inning victory over South Dakota Wednesday in game one of a doubleheader at Bowlin Stadium. The win gave Head Coach Rhonda Revelle her 700th victory at Nebraska. Revelle joins former baseball coach John Sanders as the only two coaches to win 700 games as a Husker.
The Huskers’ 14 runs and 14-run victory were both stadium records as NU started it’s 10th season at Bowlin. Tatum Edwards and Ashley Guile each drove in four RBIs in the first game.
In game two, NU Freshman Taylor Edwards hit her 10th home run of the season to help the Huskers to a 6-5 win over South Dakota and complete a doubleheader sweep of the Coyotes. The win was Nebraska’s ninth straight victory, as the Huskers continued the best start in school history while improving their season record to 21-2.
