UNgO Nuts and Doane-Nut Annual Swing!

We hosted our annual swing tournament with Doane College this weekend. We had a great time incorporating Halloween and Dia de los Muertos themes into the tournament. Thanks to UNO faculty members Lynnette and Mark Leonard for judging all weekend and to Rita Shaughnessy for donating food. Also, a huge thanks to UNO Forensics alumni Becky Boyer, Cary Clark, Matt Eledge, Doug Hitzel, Marty Ertz, Teresa Oberdorfer and Buey Ruet for judging!
