The group of recruits includes 10 high school seniors and two transfers. Four of the players were Nebraska All-State selections this past season.
Kaitlyn Janata was Class D-2 1st-Team All-State and was part of 2012 state runner-up team at Howells High School, Felicia Tekolste earned Class B 2nd-Team All-State honors leading Norris to the state tournament. Koi Bradley was Class A honorable mention and part of the Class A State Championship team, while Kelly Sanchez earned honorable mention Class C-1.
