The Omaha Supernovas, a professional indoor volleyball team are in their inaugural season.

“Having the Supernovas in Nebraska just helps promote volleyball even more,” MSHS volleyball coach Angela Thorn said. “I mean, Nebraska loves volleyball so I think it’s great for us,’’ she said.

The Supernovas play their home games in the CHI Health Center. The team is led by an ownership group headed by Omaha businessman Danny White and R&B/pop singer, Jason Derulo.

     The team, composed of 18 girls who all either played in college or have been playing professionally, practice at  the College of Saint Mary.

  Despite being new to playing together, the girls are a tight knit group and their love for volleyball shows with every game they play.

“I think we play really well together, and that’s one of the most important things when it comes to just about any sport, teamwork,” outside hitter Gina Mancuso-Prososki said.

The team has had its ups and down this season. Their first game didn’t go as planned, as they lost to the Atlanta Vibe, but have since went on to an 11-6 record o

Outside hitter, Bethania De La Cruz has a mean overhand serve, and she has served a countless number of aces throughout the season, along with the skilled setters, Natalia Valentin-Anderson, and Sydney Hilley.

The team plays seven more games this season, and they say they can’t wait to get back on the court. Nebraska has already fallen in love with this team and every home game is packed at the CHI Health Center.

The Supernovas love their fans and love keeping them involved; they always find fun hands-on activities and games to make their fans feel like part of the family.

The Supernovas are inspiring young volleyball plays across Nebraska. These girls look up to the team as role models and would love nothing more than to one day be part of it.

“I think having the Supernovas in Omaha is really inspiring, and it gives girls a bigger goal to work toward,’’ junior Karigan Titman said.
