Spring Fling 2011 – John Cook to Speak



Plans are being made for the 10th annual Henderson Health Care Foundation Spring Fling.  The event is set for Saturday, February 26th.  With this being the 10th anniversary for this event, we want to make it a special evening!

John Cook UNL Head Volleyball coach will be speaking this year following the meal at the Bethesda Mennonite Church Fellowship Hall.
Cook took over the NE VB program following the 1999 season.  The challenge facing him was daunting, as he was replacing one of volleyballs legendary coaches, Terry Pettit. But, Cook had his own vision for Nebraska volleyball.  His goals included consistently selling out home matches at the Coliseum, expanding the media exposure for his program, and continuing the tradition of athletic and academic excellence started by Pettit.
In 2006, Cooks dream was realized, by record setting sold out crowds, and a team that maximized their potential in winning the school’s third national title. Consistent excellence has been a hallmark of Cook’s NE squads.  Over the last nine years he has guided the team to three national titles, five NCAA semifinal appearances and nine Big 12 titles.  His teams have compiled a 336-29 overall record. Nebraska will enter 2011 with an NCAA record 149 consecutive sellouts at the NU Coliseum.  This is the longest sellout streak in NCAA Women’s athletics.
Cook’s accomplishments haven’t gone unnoticed, as he is a two time AVCA National Coach of the year, and a four time Big 12 coach of the year. Cook’s vision for the future is for the Huskers to remain at the forefront of college volleyball.  John Cook’s philosophy can be summarized in two simple words, DREAM BIG!
