Kalynn Meyer sees action for Husker volleyball team
November 19, 2020
Kalynn Meyer, a 2020 Superior High School graduate, accepted a full scholarship to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, to play for the volleyball team.
COVID-19 reared its ugly head and threw the season into turmoil. The Huskers will not play a regular season match until after the first of the year.
John Cook, the Nebraska head volleyball coach who is entering his 21st season, has his team members working out five days per week for a five week training block. The culmination of the training block was the Red and White Scrimmage last Thursday. Meyer saw her first action as a Husker during the match where she saw playing time as a middle blocker.
Cook, in his post match press conference, commented on Meyer’s play. He was impressed she did not act like a freshman. He singled out her athleticism and fast arm. He was also impressed with how quickly she adapted to the Husker system.
While Meyer will see playing time when the season begins, it’s uncertain when that may be.
After a break for Thanksgiving and finals, the team will return to practice for the month of December. If the season commences in January, they will be ready.
