WAYNE, NE (KTIV) -
The Nebraska volleyball team recorded a 3-0 sweep over Creighton in a spring game played at Rice Auditorium on the campus of Wayne State College Saturday before a sold out crowd of just over 2,000 people in the Rumble in Rice. Scores of the match were 25-15, 25-19 and 25-22. The event was held to help raise money for the re-construction of the Wayne Summer Sports Complex that was destroyed by the October 4th tornado that hit Wayne last fall.
Nebraska held Creighton to a minus attack percentage in the first two sets before Creighton reeled off 14 kills in the third set to finish with a .109 attack percentage compared to Nebraska’s .265. Both teams had eight blocks in the contest.
Kelsey Fien led Nebraska in hitting with 12 kills followed by Amber Rolfzen and Kadie Rolfzen with nine kills apiece. Mary Pollmiller accouted for 33 set assists while libero Justine Wong-Orantes had 15 digs for the Huskers.
Creighton’s top attacker was Jess Bird with 11 kills and a .474 attack percentage followed by Melanie Jereb with seven kills. Maggie Baumert was credited with 26 set assists while Kate Elman had 15 digs.
