On Aug. 28, the night of the Kansas State match, Nebraska volleyball alumni Justine Wong-Orantes was honored for helping USA Volleyball win gold as libero in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. After Wong-Orantes’ legendary collegiate career concluded in 2016, the libero position was filled by Kenzie Maloney, who held the role for two seasons.
