Alexa Strange Leaving NU Volleyball Team

husker volley(AP) — The Nebraska volleyball program has lost another player.

Coach John Cook announced Monday night that rising sophomore Alexa Strange is returning to her home state of California and will focus on playing beach volleyball. Cook says he wishes her the best.

Strange was the only setter on the Cornhuskers’ roster this spring. Strange played in 25 matches last season as a right-side hitter.

Last week Cook announced Hayley Thramer would miss her senior season because of a knee injury. Thramer is the fifth starter from last season who will be missing. Three seniors graduated, and libero Lara Dykstra transferred.
