2005-06: Outlook         

Coming off of a productive junior campaign, Milena Schulz-Gartner (pronounced Mill-a-nuh Schulz-Gart-ner) looks to make a contribution at the top half of the Husker lineup in her final year of competition.


Schulz-Gartner is a solid doubles player and will add depth toward the bottom of the doubles lineup.  An aggressive player with much power,  she hopes to build off a 13-win doubles season to help Nebraska return to postseason action.


In the fall, Schulz-Gartner competed in the ITA All-American Championships.  In doubles she teamed with sophomore Imke Reimers, as they defeated Natalia Kostenko and Vana Mrazovic of Pacific, 8-5. 


Head Coach Scott Jacobson believes Schulz-Gartner’s mentality is paying dividends for the Huskers. She is a heavy groundstroker who can literally overpower most opponents from the baseline.  She is a great competitor and has a very strong mindset, Jacobson said.


2004-05: Junior
Schulz-Gartner built off of a solid sophomore season and carried the momentum into her junior campaign.  The native of  Germany played anywhere from the No. 2 to 4 slots but saw most of her action at the No. 3 position, where she went 7-4 on the season.  Three of her four losses were three-set thrillers.   

Schulz-Gartner combined her hard-hitting style of play and experience to give the Huskers a valuable middle lineup player.  She did not appear in the team's last six matches of the regular season.  While, NU won five of those six matches, her absence was felt, as four of the victories were decided by one point.      

In doubles, the two-time letterwinner teamed up primarily with Pamela Castillejos at the No. 3 slot where they produced an 8-3 record.  Schulz-Gartner finished the season with a 13-4 doubles record.

2003-04: Sophomore   
Schulz-Gartner began the season as the No.1 singles player for the Huskers, while Gitte Ostermann recuperated from an injury.  At the top slot, Schulz-Gartner went 3-3.  At the No. 2 slot, she found greater success with a 13-6.  She also went 5-6 in conference action.  During the spring season, Schulz-Gartner put together two four-match winning streaks.              


On the doubles court, she was just as effective.  Teaming with senior Anna Oehme at the No. 3 doubles slot, the tandem went 18-4, including a conference record of 9-2.  Their doubles season win total tied the tandems of Jennifer Thoste and Sandra Noetzel in 1996-97 and Lisa Hart and  Annie Yang to rank fifth in school history.                            


Schulz-Gartner received the first academic honor of her career when she was named to the 2004 Big 12 Commissioner's Spring Honor Roll. 


Schulz-Gartner posted a 4-3 singles record in her first collegiate action. After falling to No. 84 Yanick Dullens of Denver in the first round of the ITA Central Region Championships, Schulz-Gartner won three straight matches to advance to the consolation semifinals.        

In doubles action, Schulz-Gartner teamed with NU senior Anna Oehme and went 2-0 at the Lloyd Stokstad Invitational.


Before Nebraska                                             

Schulz-Gartner attended Hans-Geiger Gymnasium High School where she graduated in 2002. Gitte Ostermann, a first-team All-Big 12 performer for the huskers, attended the same school.  After Gymnasium, Schulz-Gartner attended Christian-Albrechts University, where she studied law for a year before transferring to Nebraska.


Born Jan. 31, 1983, in Kiel, Germany, Milena Schulz-Gartner is the daughter of Christina and Axel. Schulz-Gartner has one older brother, Christer, 23. Milena is an international business major.
