Two Nebraskans commit to UNO

Two players preparing for their senior seasons of high school have recently committed to volleyball scholarship offers from UNO for the fall of 2013.

Kristy Wieser of Lincoln Pius X and Nicki Carson of Ord will join the Mavericks for their third season of Division I competition. UNO was 5-23 last year in its first season of reclassifying to Division I.

The 6-foot-1 Wieser has been a starting right-side hitter for Pius the past two seasons, helping the team to a fourth-place finish in 2010 and the Class B state championship last fall. Carson, 6-0, was named the all-tournament setter after leading Ord to a Class C-2 state championship.

Both were honorable mention all-state selections.
