Even though the Nebraska ONE 151 team goes by the name Shockerz, it really wouldn’t be a shock to anyone if the group finds its way to the national championships this year.
The Shockerz group has been to nationals each of the last four years, including a fifth-place finish in its division a year ago. Nebraska ONE 15 Shockerz coach Christian Boesiger, who is being assisted by Dee Cee Mathers and Mitch Braun, said her team is focused on maintaining and improving upon its winning tradition.
“We return a solid core group from their team that has gone to nationals the last four years. Many of the returning players played significant roles on their high school varsity team,” Boesiger said. “We play to be a solid ball-control team and run a fast-paced offense.”
As the head coach at Norris, Boesiger is familiar with several of her players considering three play for the Titans and the team setter, Maisie Boesiger, is her eighth-grade daughter.
Defensively, Nebraska ONE 15 Shockerz has Norris libero Molly Ramsey, who had 362 digs this past fall, to go along with Kynley Sis from Papillion-LaVista South. Breckyn Moore, also of Papillion-LaVista South, is a defensive specialist that can also play outside hitter.
The team’s main outside hitters from last year that are back include Lincoln Southeast 5’11 freshman Brittany Wulf, who had 202 kills this fall. There is also Brooke Peltz, who had 119 kill and 137 digs her freshman year at Lincoln East.
In the middle and right side will be a trio of trees. Kalli Kroeker, a 6’0 freshman from Norris who had 149 kills and 55 blocks this fall, returns along with Norris 5’11 right side Brianna Stai. A newcomer to the group is Nebraska City Lourdes 6’3 freshman Gina McGowen.
