Omaha practice player Maggie Cartwright has been moved up to the Active Roster to take Mancuso-Prososki's place while on IR.

Cartwright, an Arkansas graduate, and opposite hitter spent five seasons in Fayetteville and helped the Razorbacks to their first-ever Elite Eight appearance during the 2023 NCAA Volleyball Tournament. Following her career at Arkansas, which included over 1,200 kills and 900 digs, Cartwright was drafted No. 22 overall by the Supernovas in the Pro Volleyball Federation U.S. College Player Draft last December.

Cartwright moves to the Supernovas Active Roster as they prepare for the first road match in franchise history with a showdown with the Grand Rapids Rise on Monday, February 12 at 6 p.m. CST.

Fans can listen to all the action courtesy of the Supernovas flagship radio station, 93.7 The Ticket as well as affiliates in 95.7 The Boss in Omaha, KRVN in Lexington, KOLT in Scottsbluff and KTOC in West Point.

The match can be seen on the Pro Volleyball Federation's YouTube channel.

The Supernovas are one of seven U.S. teams for the 2024 inaugural season: Omaha Supernovas, Atlanta Vibe, Orlando Valkyries, Columbus Fury, Grand Rapids Rise, San Diego Mojo and Vegas Thrill. Three expansion teams, Dallas Pro Volleyball, Kansas City Pro Volleyball and Indianapolis Pro Volleyball, have been announced for 2025. The Supernovas will have 12 home and 12 away matches as part of a 24-match schedule across a 16-week regular season.

At the end of the regular season, the Supernovas aim to be in the final four playoff, chasing the Pro Volleyball Federation Championship in May. The championship's location will be determined and announced later.
