Lindsay Wischmeier enters her second year with the University of Northern Colorado volleyball program in 2006.
A former standout at the University of Nebraska, Wischmeier was that program's first-ever libero. In her first season as an assistant at Northern Colorado, she helped Bears libero Abby Mayne earn Division I Independent Co-Defensive Player of the Year honors. Mayne led the team in digs (4.44/game - 480 total), had double-digit digs in 24 of 30 total matches and 20-plus digs on nine different occasions. Also a former setter, Wischmeier coached 2005 Division I Independent first-team selection Corrinne Chapin, who led the team in assists (11.38/game).
In four years at Nebraska (1999-02), Wischmeier never missed a match, competing as a setter her freshman year and a defensive specialist her sophomore and junior years before taking over the newly-formed libero role her senior season (2002). She was the team captain in 2002, set the school record for career digs (1,111) and is one of only six Huskers to have more than 1,000 career digs.
Wischmeier played in 133 straight matches in her career, and in 436 of a possible 438 career sets and her 3.35 digs/game average ranks fourth in NU history. As a setter in 1999 she recorded a freshman record 724 set assists and was a second-team All-American Farm Team selection. During her sophomore season (2000), she helped the Cornhuskers to the national championship.
Wischmeier was a three-time first-team Academic All-Big 12 selection, a six-time selection to the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll and finished her degree in business administration at Nebraska in 2003 when helped serve as an undergraduate assistant coach.
She spent 2004 on the staff at Virginia Tech University, where the Hokies finished 13-16 overall and 7-9 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Bears and Hokies met on the volleyball court during the 2005 season, with Tech claiming a 3-1 victory.
A native of Burchard, Neb., Wischmeier led Lewiston High School to a pair of Class D-2 State Championships (1995 and 1997), and D-2 Player of the Year honors while also being a three-time academic all-state selection.
Her duties as an assistant include working with the liberos and setters and helping the program expand its recruiting into the Midwest region.
