Cyza Picks Up MIAA Award

Kearney-UNK Outside Hitter Emersen Cyza has been named the MIAA Offensive Player of the Week. Cyza paced the UNK offense by averaging 4.21 kills per set and hitting at a .349 clip as the No. 10-ranked Lopers went 4-0 in its annual fall tournament. The junior totaled 20 kills in a five-set win over No. 30-ranked Central Washington while reaching at least 11 kills in the other three matches. Additionally, Cyza had a key ace to help UNK tie CWU at 24-all in the fourth set after the Lopers faced a match point.

Four members of the 10th-ranked Nebraska-Kearney volleyball team have been named to the 2022 Rosella Meier Fall Classic All-Tournament team.

The Lopers and No. 2 Washburn each went 4-0 this past weekend with No. 30 Central Washington (2-2), Midwestern State of Texas (1-3) and Minot State of North Dakota (0-4) rounding out the field. New Victorian Inn & Suites and Cunningham’s sponsored the event.

Junior outside Emersen Cyza (Alliance), junior middles Fallon Stutheit (Johnson) and Bailee Sterling (Kearney) and sophomore right side Lauren Taubenheim (Lincoln) represent the Lopers.
