Creighton Volleyball Earns First Top-25 Ranking

OMAHA, Neb. -- On the heels of a record 10-match win streak, the Creighton Volleyball team moved into the AVCA Top 25 for the first time in program history. The Bluejays who were 27th a week ago with 31 points, moved into the No. 25 spot with 80 points in the voting.

Creighton heads into its final home weekend with a 22-3 record, easily the best start in program history. The Bluejays are 13-1 in the Missouri Valley Conference, owning a 1.5 game lead over three-time defending champion Northern Iowa. CU completed its first season-sweep of the Panthers last Saturday, using a five-set win to snap the Panthers 34-match home win streak in Valley play.

Creighton will host Indiana State on Friday at 5 pm, then honor Megan Bober, Brooke Boggs, Brittany Moon and Heather Thorson prior to Saturday's 6 pm match vs. Illinois State as part of Senior Day festivities.

With both the men's soccer and the men's basketball teams ranked No. 16 nationally, the addition of the volleyball team in the national polls gives Creighton three nationally-ranked teams at the same time for the first time in recorded history.
