Position Breakdown: Setters
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas enters the 2019 fall schedule with two setters on its roster, including returner Camryn Ennis who split time with Gabby Simpson last season in the setter role.
"Sara (Nielsen), a transfer from Minnesota, gave us a big boost and the opportunity for her to go on the foreign trip with us was critical. She got an early jump on working with our academic and strength & conditioning programs. Camyrn (Ennis) is also back who benefited from her playing time during her freshman year. She is playing at a high level, and those two will combine to be a really good unit for us."Ray Bechard
Ennis returns to the Jayhawks for her sophomore campaign after a successful first year with the program where she split time as a setter and outside hitter. Ennis played in 24 matches with 19 starts and served as the primary setter until a midseason injury. The San Antonio, Texas native led KU last season with 11 double-doubles and tallied a season-high 39 assists twice last season.
Nielsen joined the program this summer after spending her first two seasons at Minnesota. Nielsen saw action in 19 matches last season for the Golden Gophers. She earned valuable playing time with the Jayhawks after joining the group for their Europe foreign tour.
