Staying in her home state, Nebraska freshman Maisie Boesiger looks to make her impact known in any way she can throughout her time on the court for the Huskers volleyball team. After growing up just half an hour away from Lincoln, Maisie made her dreams come true when she committed to join coach John Cook’s squad. After enrolling early and currently with the Nebraska Beach Volleyball Team traveling the country, she says she hopes her time with Nebraska is full of joy and excitement as she looks to make a difference.

After competing at Norris High School for her mom, Christina, Maisie lettered in each of her four years there. As her mom helped coach her on the court, she also made sure faith was a priority for the Boesiger family, too.

Maisie says, “I grew up in a Christian home. I welcomed God into my heart at a very young age, and I learned the importance of building a strong relationship with God.”

Maisie says that her favorite verse is Colossians 3:23, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Maisie says she has made this verse a part of her everyday life every time she takes the court.

“I think this is a very inspiring Bible verse, especially in the world of athletics. I wrote this bible verse on my volleyball and basketball shoes. It is a great reminder that what you do on the court, you are doing it for the glory of God. You are using the talents and abilities that He blessed you with.”

After finishing an illustrious high school career at Norris, Boesiger looks with excitement and anticipation towards her next four years at Nebraska. She says that her faith helps guide her on the court and has allowed her to play with joy and alleviate the pressures associated with the game.

“God created us and put us into the world to use all of the talents and abilities that he has blessed us individually with, to reflect him. So when I play volleyball, I know I am playing with the abilities God blessed me with. And I hope to reflect on him through my actions on the court, by the way I treat my teammates and coaches.”

Maisie says that she has learned that even when things may not have always gone her way, faith has been a guiding light and comfort for her.

“Facing challenges has strengthened my faith, perseverance, and relationship with Jesus. I know God puts those challenges in my life for a reason. Any setback in life has made me work even harder to reach my dreams. At the moment it is hard to see the big picture, but in the end, I am able to thank God for all the challenges in my life that have helped me to be the person and player I am today.”

With the opportunity to play in front of family and friends for every game at Nebraska’s Devaney Center, Maisie said that the decision to come to Nebraska was a no-brainer.

“Nebraska is my home state, and there’s not a better program, coaching staff, or fan base in the United States. I know I will have a lot of family and friends watching, and also many others now that I am on a bigger stage.”

Maisie says that with that platform, she hopes to always exude joy and a smile for whoever is watching.

“I hope to share with others the joy and love I have for playing volleyball. I think it’s special when you see the love and passion a player has for the game and their teammates. I want to do whatever I can to be a great teammate and carry on the tradition of Nebraska volleyball.”

As Maisie continues to compete with the Nebraska Beach Volleyball team in the spring before the fall of her freshman year, she has already experienced life-changing relationships with her teammates during her short time in Lincoln. With a bright future ahead, Maisie looks to support the Huskers in whatever way she can on their way back to fighting for a National Championship.
