The University of Nebraska volleyball team is currently on a 17-day trip in China. Huskers.com will feature updates on the team's travel with daily updates from play-by-play announcer John Baylor, who is accompanying the team on this journey. Click on the photo album for pictures and video and audio reports will be sent in throughout the trip.
The team will spend time in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Xi'an and Beijing during its time in China, spending time with UNL's sister schools Xi'an Jiaotong University City College and Zheijiang University City College, as well as sightseeing around the country. This is the Huskers' third trip to China, as the team took foreign tours prior to the 2000 and 2006 seasons as well.
In additional to the educational and cultural experiences, the Huskers will also be challenged on the court with scrimmages against some of the best university and club teams they can face, and Cook said the competition the Huskers will face will test them for the upcoming season.
The Huskers will have their full 2010 roster on the trip, as the Huskers welcome back six starters, including All-Americans Sydney Anderson, Brooke Delano and Tara Mueller. In addition, newcomers Lauren Cook and Morgan Broekhuis will both participate in the trip, since they were both enrolled in the spring semester.
