Senior (2018-19)
Nina Radulovic rounded out her senior season as an established leader of the Nebraska rifle team. Radulovic has been a source of leadership on the range for the Huskers, competing 54 times in smallbore and 53 times in air rifle over the course of her collegiate career. She finished the season with a career average smallbore score of 574.28 and an average air rifle score of 584.64. Her highest smallbore score came in 2016 against Kentucky (586), while she recorded her highest air rifle score (593) twice, most recently against Army in 2017.

One of Nebraska's most committed student-athletes in the classroom and the community, Radulovic has earned Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and Academic All-Big Ten honors, while also claiming a Sam Foltz Hero 27 Leadership Award. She was named to the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team four years in a row. 

Junior (2017-18)
Radulovic shouldered a lot of weight as a junior in 2017-18 following an outstanding sophomore year.  She competed in nearly every match for the Huskers, helping the team to a sixth consecutive NCAA Championships appearance. Nebraska relied on her as one of the top shooters after losing two All-America seniors following the 2016-17 season.

Radulovic also led the team in the classroom and community as an academic All-Big Ten selection and a member of the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.

Sophomore (2016-17)
Radulovic competed in every match, both regular and postseason, including the GARC and NCAA Championships. She set a new career high in both disciplines with scores of 586 and 593 in smallbore and air rifle, respectively.

Radulovic also earned a spot on the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team and was named to the first Nebraska Sam Foltz Hero 27 Leadership Award for her leadership and efforts in the community. During the summer of 2017, Radulovic placed second in the women's 50m outdoor three-position smallbore at the Serbian National Championships. Coached by Marijana Novkovic, Radulovic led her club team (Novi Sad 1790) to a first-place national finish.

Freshman (2015-16)
Radulovic was the third signee in Coach Ashley MacAllister's first recruiting class. Nebraska's first Serbian shooter, Radulovic made an immediate impact on an experienced Husker squad.

She was the only freshman to regularly compete for the Huskers in both smallbore and air rifle, firing career-best scores of 593 (air rifle) and 584 (smallbore). Additionally, she was the only underclassman to compete for the Huskers at the 2016 NCAA Championships, where the team finished eighth.

Before Nebraska
Radulovic came to Nebraska after shooting competitively in Europe for the previous eight years. The top shooter in the youth categories in her district for six years, Radulovic helped lead Serbia's Junior three-member 10-meter air rifle team to a 14th-place finish at the 2015 European Championships in the Netherlands in March, setting a team record of 1235.5 along the way. Radulovic also won multiple medals at both the Serbian Championships and the Serbian Cup Finals in her junior career.

She was also a member of Serbia's Junior 10-Meter Air Rifle Team that finished ninth at the 2014 ISSF World Championship in Spain.

In September of 2014, Radulovic competed on Serbia's three-member junior team at the 2014 ISSF World Championship in Granada, Spain. She helped Serbia to a ninth-place finish among the 19 teams competing in the field, including the United States, which finished seventh.

Personal
The daughter of Milan and Nada Radulovic, Nina was born on June 14, 1996. She has one sister, Neda. Nina is majoring in psychology, political science and women's and gender studies at Nebraska. She was a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and academic All-Big Ten choice in both 2017 and 2018. Radulovic is a seven-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll and has earned four selections to the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.
