LOOK: Future Huskers Compete in 2021 State Volleyball Tournament

November 07, 2021

A pair of future Huskers competed in the NSAA Volleyball State Championships this week.

Maisie Boesiger, who is committed to walk on at Nebraska as a defensive specialist, led the Norris Titans — coached by her mother, Christina — to a runner-up finish in Class B. The Titans fell in four sets to Omaha Skutt at the Devaney Center on Saturday night as the SkyHawks won their record-setting seventh straight state title.

Norris swept Hastings Adams Central in the first round behind 31 assists, 12 digs, four kills and four aces from Boesiger. She finished with 55 assists, 21 digs, three kills, one ace and one block in a five-set win against Elkhorn North in the semifinals. Boesiger had 35 assists and 15 digs against Skutt in the final.

Boesiger averaged 10.4 assists, 3.2 digs, 1.0 kills and 0.7 aces per set while leading the Titans to a 35-3 season as a senior. She finished her career as the school’s career leader in assists (3,458) and service aces (226).

Bekka Allick, a 6-foot-3 senior middle blocker commit, led the Waverly Vikings to the state semifinals. Allick had to watch from the bench last year as her teammates — including current Husker Whitney Lauenstein — played in the state tournament because of a season-ending injury suffered mid-year. She finally got her chance to play at Pinnacle Bank Arena this year, though, and she went down swinging.

Waverly swept Grand Island Northwest in the first round on Wednesday behind 23 kills on .463 hitting, 17 digs and two blocks. The Vikings came up just short in a five-set thriller on Friday against the SkyHawks, but Allick capped her career with a monster performance as she finished with a school record 37 kills on .431 hitting, 15 digs, one block and one ace.

Allick moved from middle blocker to outside hitter this season and averaged 5.7 kills per set on .292 hitting, 4.4 digs per set and 0.5 aces per set. She notched 559 kills in 44 matches as a Viking after transferring from Lincoln North Star following her sophomore year.

Hail Varsity staff photographer John Peterson was at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Friday to capture all the action in the Class B semifinals.
