CHAMPAGNE, fig. – The University of Illinois swimming and diving team ready to face Nebraska who took the double win against Iowa last weekend. The Illini will take on the Huskers at the ARC on Saturday, January 22nd at 11am to commemorate Senior Day and our annual Splash Bash.

“We have another fantastic opportunity this weekend to compete and test ourselves against a strong Nebraska team,” said Head Coach Sue Novitsky“We want to take steps forward as a team and improve last week’s efforts.”

After a “perfect” meeting with Iowa on Saturday, all eyes are on Senior Abigail Cabush to lead the way for Orange and Blue. Last weekend, Cabush finished first in all of her events and relays and also clocked the best in the process for a lifetime. sophomore How to get to Bognar and freshmen Sydney Stoll made their own contributions against the Hawkeyes with two first places of their own.


This weekend’s game marks Nebraska’s first Big Ten matchup of 2022. Nebraska (5-1) last competed as a team on December 10 in a 197-103 win against Omaha. The Huskers have the advantage over the Fighting Illini, 8-6, in the all-time series, including five straight wins from 2015-2020. However, in their most recent matchup at 1/23/21, the Fighting Illini won, 164-136 in Lincoln. In that meeting, How to get to Bognar placed first in all three hair events, and seniors Sydney Kennedy and Emily Bolger also hit the podium in multiple events.
