Both Slaughter and and Szabo, freshman on the Nebraska Cornhuskers volleyball squad, are graduates of the Sioux Empire area in southeast South Dakota. Szabo is from Sioux Falls and a graduate of Lincoln High School, while Slaughter is an alumna of Harrisburg.

Throughout their freshman campaign, playing time wasn’t abundant. Szabo saw action in 26 sets, while Slaughter found playing time in seven sets.
