By Man woouy Staff Reporter A familiar face is once again part of the Nebraska volleyball team. Val Novak, an All-American for the Comhuskers in 1989 and 1990, rejoined the team over the summer. This time, however, Novak will see the NU Coliseum floor only from the sidelines, as a coach. Novak joins the coaching staff as interim assistant coach, replacing two year assistant Brian Begor, who left Nebraska for the University of Pittsburgh. “It was important to find the best coach possible, and to find someone who was familiar with the program,” Nebraska volleyball coach Terry Pettit said. Pettit said Novak had primarily worked with the setters and right-side players, such as Nikki Strieker, Christy Johnson, Stephanie Clerc and Kelly Aspegren. Novak said she brought a lot of knowledge to the team, especially the setters. “I know what it’s like to be frustrated as a setter and to be a winner as a setter,” she said. “I would like to help Nikki (Strieker) and Stephanie (Clerc) get past the frustrating part to -« I know what it's like to be frustrated as a setter and to be a winner as a setter.

Novak said coaching was a lot tougher than performing on the court. <7It is a lot more mentally fatiguing than playing was,” Novak said. “But I really enjoy it.” When the job opened up, Novak said she already had a job lined up as a substitute teacher and as assistant volleyball coach at Papill ion-La Vista High School, under Gwen Egbert, another former NU player. Novak said becoming a coach had given her the opportunity to gain a higher understanding of the game. But that isn’t her only reward, she said. “It makes you feel good when you do something to help the team and it works,” she said. “That’s just one of the thrills of coaching.” co.c„ v.» S,"n ^ 1ae i^Aua^TZZ *- has WwffiJ0™1' g Combination.” unbeatable bonus is Combination”—a i of the best in a :addy-organizer. no extra charge, "linique purchase r more.
