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.
