NU volleyball head coach John Cook and players Lauren Stivrins, Nicklin Hames and Kayla Caffey discuss the Huskers’ loss to Wisconsin in the national championship game.

Nebraska volleyball star Callie Schwarzenbach has entered her name into the NCAA transfer portal, allowing her to be recruited by other teams.

The center blocker was a senior for Nebraska this season, but could have returned for one more season due to last season, not counting eligibility.

Schwarzenbach has appeared in 17 games this season, starting before Lauren Stivrins returned from injury.

Schwarzenbach ranks sixth in program history in career blocks (392) during the rally era (since 2001), starting as a freshman on Nebraska’s 2018 NCAA runner-up team.

Nicklin Hames and Kayla Caffey have not yet announced whether they will return to Nebraska for another season.

After a one-year exception to the scholarship limit, college volleyball teams will have the full 12 scholarship limit again for next season, meaning seniors may have to go through if they want to return.
