Former Gopher and United States Olympian Lindsey Berg will be in attendance for the big Gopher/Nebraska match on Sunday.

Berg will sign autographs from 2:45 until the start of the match at 3:30 p.m. In between the first and second set, Berg will be honored out on the court for her accomplishments.

One of the biggest names on the international volleyball scene, Lindsey Berg first starred as a setter for the Golden Gophers. A three-time All-Big Ten selection, Berg was a four-year starter at Minnesota and ranks second all-time in Big Ten history in  services aces (283) and fourth in assists (5,913). During her Gopher career, Berg helped lead Minnesota to a pair of Big Ten runner-up finishes and NCAA Regional appearances in 1999 and 2000. In 2000, she helped lead the Gophers to a remarkable 30-4 overall record and their highest winning percentage in school history at .882.

Berg went on to become the first player from the Minnesota volleyball program to make the U.S. Olympic team in 2004. She followed with two Olympic appearances in 2008 and 2012, where she helped Team USA to back-to-back silver medals. A Honolulu, Hawaii native, Berg was named USA Volleyball Indoor Female Athlete of the Year in 2008 and 2011 and was inducted into the Minnesota Hall of Fame and the the Hawaii Sports Hall of Fame.
