Huskers ready for UT, A&M

For the first time in two weeks, the
Nebraska volleyball team is preparing
to play a match at home. The
Cornhuskers are undefeated and
ranked third in the nation. Their coach
could pick up his 700* career win this
The Huskers have several reasons
to smile in practice this week. And the
biggest reason doesn’t even arrive in
Lincoln until Friday.
NU will play host to No. 13 Texas
and No. 15 Texas A&M this weekend.
Nebraska Coach Terry Pettit said the
Texas teams offer NU its best compe
tition since Sept 4 when it battled No.
“What I saw in the players yester
day was something beyond being just
happy to be home,” Pettit said.
“The knowledge that we’re play
ing great competition this weekend
has them very excited.”
As Nebraska prepares for the chal
lenging weekend, several Huskers are
playing as well as they have all season.

The Huskers are second in the
nation with a .348 team hitting per

best blocking team in the country with
four blocks per game.
“It’s a sign of maturity, and it’s a
sign that Fiona just will not let teams
run away from us,” Pettit said.
“It’s also a sign of our depth. We
are able to substitute to our strengths.
People know that other players can
come off die bench if we need it”
After consistently playing 13 play
ers the first few weeks of die season,
Pettit has settled on a nine-player rota
tion: Jaime Krondak, Angie Oxley and
Mandy Monson on the left side;
Korver, Tonia Tauke and freshman
Jenny Kropp in the middle; Nepo at
the setter spot and Nancy Meendering
on the right side.
Pettit said the Huskers are as
healthy as they’ve been all season -
and at just the right time.
‘Texas is one of about six teams in
the country that has the physical talent
to compete for the national champi
onship,” Pettit said. “And A&M is the
surprise team of the conference. We all
thought they might not be as good as
they have been in the past, but this
looks like their best team in several
years. The team is excited.”
