Potential aces in this rotation for Nebraska
Sophomore Amber Rolfzen, left, and twin sister Kadie have big responsibilities for Nebraska this fall. Kadie Rolfzen will step into the No. 1 left-side hitter spot and try to fill the shoes of Kelsey Robinson, who was a finalist for national player of the year after recording 530 kills in her lone season in Lincoln. Amber Rolfzen became the starter at the opposite hitter spot early last season.

This time last year, it would be safe to say uncertainty swirled around the Nebraska volleyball team.
The team’s starting setter during the spring exhibition season, Alexa Strange, had just announced a transfer to Southern California. Nebraska’s eventual starting distributor, Mary Pollmiller, had yet to transfer to NU from Tennessee. Fellow Volunteers transfer Kelsey Robinson, who would have one of the finest seasons in Husker history, had never played an official match in scarlet and cream, and the much-ballyhooed Rolfzen twins had yet to show their stuff at the college level.
