Reitsma pilots Huskers past
Gators in five grueling games
By Mitch Sherman
The Nebraska volleyball team fi
nally got what it wanted Sunday after
noon at the NU Coliseum.
A fter 2 1 /2 months of blowout s, the
top-ranked Cornhuskers were chal
lenged. No. 3 Florida stretched Ne
braska to its limit, finally falling short
as the Huskers won 15-4, 15-13, Il
ls, 14-16, 15-7. The Husker victory
before a crowd of 4,163 fans lasted 2
hours and 31 minutes.
Nebraska was paced by sophomore
middle blocker Lisa Reitsma, whose
37 kills were the second most ever in
Nebraska history, one short of Enid
Schonewise ’ s school record of 3 Skills
set against Arizona State in 1986.
Reitsma also had 18 digs and five
The Huskers, who had seven players
record 12 or more attacks—compared
toonly three for the Gators—improved
to 24-1 on the season, winning their
23rd straight match. Nebraska’s con
secutive game win streak ended at 68.
Florida fell to 28-1.
“1 think what we anticipated would
happen did happen,” Nebraska coach
Terry Pettit said. “We thought this
would be a very tough match. It was
very tough. It just so happens that
when it came down to crunch time, we
did a great job.”
Allison Weston contributed 20
kills, 10 digs and eight block assists.
Setter Christy Johnson recorded a ca
reer-high 10 kills, 80 set assists and hit
.643. Billie Winsett added 18 killsand
Nebraska, which trailed at some
point in all five games, broke a 2-2 tie
in the first game and cruised to an easy

came back to tie the game at 13. A kill
by Johnson and a long hit by Gator
outside hitter Jenny Wood gave Ne
braska the victory.
Nebraska jumped to a 6-3 lead in
the third game before Florida came
back to tie the score at six. After
Florida led 13-8, the Huskers rallied
to get within 13-11, but the Gators
won the game on a kill by Aycan
Gokberk, a first-team All-Ameri
can from Izmir, Turkey, led Florida
with 30 kills and hit .348.
“We have talked about this all year,
about getting in this position and how
we would handle it,” Pettit said. “This
will be a great teaching tape for us.”
Pettit said freshman Jaime
Krondak, who notched a career-high
16 digs, along with freshman Fiona
Nepo, have given the Huskers the
depth they were missing a year ago.
Krondak and Nepo played during
much of the fourth and fifth games.
A 10-3 Florida run in the fourth
game erased a 3-0 Nebraska lead. But
the Huskers battled back and got within
three points before the Gators pulled
away and built a 14-8 lead. Nebraska
scored six straight points and tied the
game at 14 on a Jen McFadden kill,
but a Gokberk kill and a Gokberk
block tied the match at two games
The two teams stayed even early in
the rally scoring fifth game with
Nebraska’s first three points coming
on Reitsma kills. With Nebraska lead
ing 7-6 and Johnson serving, the Husk
ers rattled off seven straight points
and eventually won the match on
Reitsma’s seventh kill of the game.
“The difference between Nebraska
winning and losing really was
Reitsma,” Florida coach Mary Wise
said. “We had nothing to counter a 6
foot-4 lefty who hit so well.
“Volleyball is a game of runs, and
Nebraska made one at the right time.”
Pettit said Nebraska needed
“We were almost to the point where
it would be better to lose a five-game
match than win a three-game match,”
