have so much fun.”
Gay said the reason she fits in so
well with the giris is that she loves being
“I’m kind of a little kid myself
when I am around them,” Gay said
Growing in Texas, Gay said, she
didn’t have any female role models so
she looked up to Magic Johnson and
However, when she became a colle
giate athlete, she didn't want young
girls to have die same problem she had
“Ite important for your girls to have
role models,” Gay said. “I don’t mind
taking on that role.”
Gay also has been a role model to at
least one of her Nebraska teammates,
Anderson, a freshman from
Omaha, said she had followed
Nebraska soccer for a while and had
Gay marked as someone to model her
“When I came here, I gained even
more respect for her,” Anderson said.
“She goes out of her way to make
(freshmen) feel a part of the team.”
Gay’s genuine love of soccer and
people is good for Lineoln soccer,
Anderson said. She gets people inter
ested in NU soccer, he said, and has the
biggest fan chib on die team.
Bcchtold said that, as a coach, she
loves to see Gay go out and do these
activities on her own.
‘That way you know they are doing
it because the/ want to,” she said.
Gay plans to keep working with
these teams throughout the season and
until she graduates.
Even after she graduates and is long
gone from Nebraska, her legacy will
last, Bechtold said
“There are a lot of little girls who
want to be like Kristen Gay someday.”
NU ready for road test
ROAD from page 9
Solich agreed last season’s
Washington game was big, but he did
n’t see many similarities with this sea
son’s first toad game.
“We were more experienced in a
number of positions on the offensive
side of it than what we are now,” Solich
One similarity from 1996 will be
California Defensive Coordinator Lyle
Setencich, who served as Arizona
Stated linebacker coach in 1996.
But that doesn’t necessarily give
anyone an advantage, Solich said.
“He’s one-for-one,” Solich said.
“But certainly we’ve studied that film.
We know exactly what they do on the
defensive end of things. We have a pret
ty good feel for it
“I think, where our football team is
at, I feel comfortable going on the road
I don’t see it as a big issue or a problem,
and I certainly don’t want to build it
into a problem by talking about it too
Sophomore rush end Kyle Vanden
Bosch left practice Tuesday with a
“fairly severe ankle sprain,” Solich
said Vanden Bosch is questionable for
Saturday’s game. Comerback Erwin
Swiney, a sophomore, also left practice
early because of an ankle sprain suf
fered earlier this season.
Senior rush end Mike Rucker was
not able to practice Tuesday because of
a groin injury, and senior center Josh
Heskew missed practice with a sore

It may be early in the season, but the
Nebraska volleyball team is finding
itself in a precarious position.
As the Corahuskers (4-0) prepare
tor mis weekend s
they may have to
do so without one
of their outside hit
sprained her left
r**ul knee Thursday in
San Diego, may be delegated to back
row play only this weekend in order to
speed up her recovery.
“We don't know what the status of
Monson is,” Pettit said. “Maybe she’ll
get to serve and pass a little, I’d be sur
prised if she gets to play any front row
In the meantime, Pettit will look to
sophomore outside hitters Kim
Behrends and senior Jaime Krondak.
“I thought Kim did a nice job (last
weekend),^’ Pettit said.
Behrends is currently fifth on the
team in kills with 17 and is hitting .333.
Krondak has been nursing a sore
left foot for more than two weeks, but
was able to provide a spark for Huskers
in the match against Stanford.
“She wanted to be on the court ver
sus Stanford,” Pettit said. “I was really
impressed with the way she took charge
in that situation.”
In limited action Krondak is hitting
a team-best .467.
The fourth-ranked Huskers will
probably need another big week from
what Pettit calls a large corps of players.
NU will play Oregon State on
Fiktay and the winner of the Ohio State
Xavier match on Saturday.
The 14*-ranked Buckeyes are 2-1
having defeated 11 ^ranked Florida
and 20“-ranked UCLA.
“Their sets are very quick,” Pettit
said “They’re a very quick team with a
very up tempo offense.”
“This week’s challenge is probably
a little bit greater than last week’s.”
