Nebraska volleyball sets women’s sports attendance record

“Volleyball Day” in Lincoln, Nebraska, will go down in history.

Wednesday’s matchup between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Omaha Mavericks drew 92,003 spectators to the Cornhuskers’ Memorial Stadium, according to Nebraska, setting not only a NCAA record for women’s volleyball attendance, but the national and world attendance record for any women’s sporting event.

“The WORLD RECORD for a Women’s Sporting Event lives in Lincoln,” the team announced on social media. “There is NO place like Nebraska.”

Huskers head coach John Cook got emotional while talking about the feat. “We’ve dreamed big here tonight… (Junior setter) Kennedi Orr wrote me a note today that said, ‘Coach, tonight the impossible will be possible.’ We did it,” Cook said.
