Bergen Reilly and Val Novak Warrior: Setting For a Championship Team – ITCM 57

As a freshman this past season, setter Bergen Rilley helped lead Nebraska Volleyball to a Big Ten title and an appearance in the NCAA Championship Game against Texas. Former All-American setter and Huskers’ assistant coach Val Novak Warrior joins Reilly and Terry Pettit in a conversation about the setter position and what it takes to play at a supreme level.


  1. Thank You for the podcast about the amazing Nebraska setters. I loved watching Bergen play this year. Hearing how she became great inspires me. I love Nebraska volleyball as my mom introduced me to it since she went to volleyball camp when Coach Pettit was there and won setter of the camp award (she is from Texas) and showed me her autographed camp picture. I started playing at 7 years old and am 12 years old now living in Georgia. I hope to be as good as Bergen one day. My club team is giving me an amazing chance to be great as I am so proud of us for winning Both National Championships (USAV and AAU) last year for club on A5 12-LA Team. I was also able to get a picture with Coach Cook at Triple Crown in Kansas City last year. My team is so talented and I feel so lucky to have the chance to set for them again this year for A5 13-Karen. I am looking forward to attending summer camps at Nebraska in the future.

      Sophie, I remember your Mom. As I recall they came to camp a couple years in a row. Good luck with your development. A5 is a strong club and if you are consistent with you work you are likely to have many great options in the future. Best, Terry Pettit
