A Husker star may have been born in G.I.

by Dave Bradley

Geez, I just love Husker volleyball, but I guess I never thought of it before as a miracle cure.
After battling sinus and allergy issues for the past 12 days in a row, Saturday night at Grand Island’s Heartland Events Center rolled around and suddenly I felt just fine.
Yep, I must have had a bad case of Big Red Spring Fever.
Before the most fans ever to see a Husker volleyball match in Central Nebraska, coach John Cook’s team showed signs of what next fall could look like, dismantling Kansas State (an NCAA Tournament team a year ago) by scores of 25-13, 25-11 and 25-23.
And while it won’t count in the record books, the match went a long ways toward setting the stage for the 2015 Huskers, a team with a brand new setter in redshirt sophomore Kelly Hunter from Papillion.
She didn’t disappoint.
