This episode of SANDCAST: Beach volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features Kristen Nuss, a standout on court one at LSU who has helped the Tigers become a perennial power in college beach volleyball. In four years with the team, she has won 111 matches (and quickly counting) and, in 2020, helped LSU rise to the No. 1 team in the country for the first time in program history.
She is an absolute delight, both on and off the court.
On this episode, we discuss:
- LSU's rise from a landlocked, underdog program to one of the best in the United States
- How Nuss wasn't recruited by a single school until her brother, Pete, told coach Russell Brock to take a look at her
- How Nuss and Taryn Kloth turned 2020 from a disappointing COVID-shortened year into one criss-crossing the country, winning tournaments all over
- How this year, the NCAA Championships are a "Super Championship" with all the talent
Much, much more.
