Continued: Reusse: Volleyball is most successful of Gophers sports

They have been in three Final Fours and lost in the title match in 2004.

The only year the tournament was missed was 1998. That was the first season for Lindsey Berg, a setter from Hawaii. She became a superstar at Minnesota, a member of the U.S. national team since 2003 and a two-time Olympic silver medalist.

Why Minnesota 15 years ago?

“I went there to build a program with Mike,’’ Berg said. “I wanted to be part of something that was special. I made that leap with Steph Hagen, and with Nicole Branagh, who had been with Mike for a year.

“I was back in Minnesota three weeks ago and went to the match with Nebraska. The Pavilion was packed with 6,000 people, it went five sets, and the fans were going nuts.

“I’m very proud to be a Gopher. I’m proud to be part of what volleyball has become at Minnesota.’’

 

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500.
