Dana Rettke on winning the 2021 DI women's volleyball title

The 2022 DI women's volleyball season will start on August 26 and go through November 27. 

The Wisconsin Badgers won the 2021 national title for the first time in program history, led by National Player of the Year, Dana Rettke. The season ended on a five-set thriller between two Big Ten programs, Wisconsin and Nebraska. The Badgers posted 24 blocks, the most in a national championship game, ever. 

The Badgers may have lost Dana Rettke, and the Huskers lost their star middle blocker Lauren Stivrins, but there has been a lot of movement in the offseason.
