Wisconsin signs Una Vajagic | Wisconsin Badgers

MADISON, Wis. — Una Vajagić has signed to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison and will play volleyball for the Badgers beginning this fall, announced by Badger head coach Kelly Sheffield Monday.

The 6-foot outside hitter from Serbia will join the Badgers after playing with Jedinstvo Stara Pazova, one of the top-tier professional volleyball programs in Serbia. With a very accomplished resume, the 19-year-old helped her team to victory in the The Serbian Cup, the Serbian SuperCup and the Serbian Superleague during the 2023-24 season. She was voted MVP in both the Serbian Cup and Serbian SuperCup. 

“I’m really fired up about Una being a part of the Badger Volleyball program,” said Sheffield. “She is a special player with a lot of skill. She passes and defends at a really high level, and is a strong attacker. She’s an experienced player who has been playing since she was very young.  Una was the leading scorer in the U21 World Championship so she has played, and performed, against very good teams. And although she won’t be competing right away when she gets here in August as she rehabs an injury, she’ll be an important player for us once she does return to competition.  She took her visit here a couple of weeks ago and really fit in with our players and our culture.”

During the 2023 FIVB Volleyball Women’s U21 World Championship, Vajagić earned best scorer and attacker, as she averaged 16.0 kills and 17.12 points per match.
