Nebraska beach volleyball win against Missouri Baptist is start of expanded season

For several reasons — the piles of snow in Lincoln this week being one of them — the Nebraska athletic department hasn’t gone all in on its beach volleyball team, but it continues to expand what is done with the program.

Nebraska wants to win the matches it plays, but still uses the beach program as a good-cross training activity, to help with team building and in recruiting for its nationally ranked indoor volleyball team.

Unlike some of the schools Nebraska goes against in beach volleyball, Nebraska doesn’t offer beach volleyball scholarships or have players who are year-round beach players.
