Four players recognized from the Huskers

Jon Johnston

Lauren Stivrins was named second team All-American

Lexi Sun was named third team All-American

Nicklin Hames and Madi Kubik were named All-American Honorable Mentions

What an honor to be named an All-American at any level. I am surprised that none of the Huskers are on the first team. Members of the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) vote, they look at statistics and team performance.

I not sure how Lauren Stivrins isn’t on the first team.

My analysis found her statistics to be equal or greater than comparable players. Her team’s performance is equal or greater. I am at a loss. I hope the Nebraska players and coaches are celebrating what they know to be greatness and not focusing on the ‘why not?’ but I wonder why not?

The AVCA named the first team All Americans:

  • Kara Bejema, Washington
  • Dani Drew, Utah
  • Leah Edmond, Kentucky
  • Jenna Gray, Stanford
  • Morgan Hentz, Stanford
  • Sydney Hilley, Wisconsin
  • Kaitlyn Hord, Penn State
  • Hannah Lockin, Baylor
  • Regan Pitttman, Minnesota
  • Yossiana Pressley, Baylor
  • Dana Rettke, Wisconsin
  • Shelly Stafford, Baylor
  • Jordan Thompson, Cincinnati
  • Micaya White, Texas
