LINDSEY BERG

Game 573 | November 8, 2000
Mike Hebert, Gopher Volleyball Players

The Gopher volleyball team had its best year in the program's history up to that time in 2000. Coach Hebert brought along his three top players, Nicole Branaugh, Stephanie Hagen and Lindsey Berg. The team won 30 games and broke Penn State's 87-match home winning streak. The Gophers defeated Robert Morris and Arizona State before losing to UC Santa Barbara in the NCAA Sweet Sixteen. Branaugh and Berg both won medals in volleyball at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.


Game 796 | September 19, 2012
Kelci Bryant, Lindsey Berg, Amanda Smock, Hugh McCutcheon

Minnesota was well represented at the 2012 London Olympics. Bryant, a two-time NCAA champion diver for the University of Minnesota, won a silver medal in the 3-meter synchronized diving competition. Berg, who was in Minnesota to be inducted into the Gopher Sports Hall of Fame, was the setter on the silver medal-winning volleyball team that lost to Brazil in four sets. Smock, a star athlete at Melrose High School and North Dakota State University, did not earn a medal in the triple jump. McCutcheon, who had coached the U.S. men's team to gold in 2008, turned his attention to the U.S. women's team in 2012 and was about to take over as head coach of the University of Minnesota women's volleyball team shortly after his Dunker appearance.
