Wayne, Neb. – The Nebraska volleyball team swept the Creighton Bluejays 3-0 (25-15, 25-19, 25-22) on Saturday in front of a sold out crowd at Rice Auditorium on the campus of Wayne State College on Saturday.

Kelsey Fien led the Huskers offensively on the day with 12 kills on 24 attacks and a .333 hitting percentage. Amber Rolfzen and Kadie Rolfzen each chipped in nine kills, while Mary Pollmiller paced the offense with 33 assists. Justine Wong-Orantes guided the Huskers defensively with 15 digs, while Melanie Keil boosted NU at the net with six blocks.

Nebraska hit .265 for the match, while Creighton was held to a .109 hitting clip. NU out-dug CU 37-33 and both teams recorded eight total blocks.

The match marked the end of the Huskers’ 2014 spring season, with Nebraska boasting a 2-0 record after a 4-0 win over Iowa State last weekend.
