ENDICOTT from page 1
In a rally-scoring fourth game, NU
fans had the chance to see Endicott
play for Nebraska one final time when
she stepped in as the setter for her alma
mater. The Huskers still lost 15-6.
NU Coach Terry Pettit, who
coached Endicott while she was at
Nebraska from 1985 through 1988,
said her return was a big thrill.
“She’s a great person and I think
our team really appreciated her return,”
Pettit said. “They could have made a
decision when the odds were against
them getting here, and I think the team
because of Lori said, ‘we are going to
fight on and see if we can’t get there.’
“•I appreciate that.”
The match in Lincoln was the fourth
stop on a six-match tour the U.S. Na
tional Team is doing to return some of
the retiring players to the places where
they started their volleyball careers.
The tour ended Sunday with a match
Before the match, Pettit and U.S.
Coach Terry Liskevych — who will
retire at the end of the month — pre
sented Endicott with a plaque that had
one picture of her in a Huskers uniform
and one in a USA uniform. Endicott’s
parents and her husband, Mark
Vandersnick, were on hand for the pre
And while Endicott made a home
coming, Nebraska turned a match that
could have been a confidence crusher
into a confidence builder, Pettit said.
“They learned how crisp things are
at a higher level.”
NU did show some flashes of
toughness after falling behind 8-0 in
the third game. Kate Cmich served six
consecutive points and the Huskers cut
the deficit to 8-7 before losing.
Lisa Reitsma led Nebraska with 12
kills and Megan Korver had eight.
Freshman Mandy Mon son played for
Jaime Krondak, who was out with the
flu. Monson had five kills and 11 digs,

NU hit .202 in the match.
Elaina Oden led the U.S. National
Team with 21 kills, while Tara Cross
Battle smashed 21. For the match, the
U.S. National Team hit .284.
“I don’t think they embarrassed
themselves,” Pettit said of his players.
“They went out and competed, and
because they competed you got to see
the U.S. team compete a little bit.”
UNO engineering building approved
COMMISSION from page 1
Wemhoff said the only building
he knew of that operated mostly on
private money was the Lied Center
for Performing Arts, which has an
endowment for maintenance
The commission approved a
budget recommendation, which will
be submitted Tuesday to the gover
nor and the Nebraska Legislature's
j Appropriations Committee. The
commission must submit a report
every two years.
Also in the construction budget
report was the approval of the
building of the Information Science,
Technology and Engineering build
ing at the University of Nebraska at
Omaha, a project that will cost at

The engineering building was
the only capital construction project
for which the University of Ne

only project to receive priority sta

The commission must approve
new facilities before state money
can be used for construction.
Funding for the engineering .
building will include $23.5 million
in state funds and $14 million in
