The Scouting Report
In 2012, the Bluejays marked their territory as one of the nation’s top collegiate soccer programs, compiling a 17–4–3 record en route to a second consecutive College Cup appearance. Entering the 2013 season, the Bluejays are again ranked among the best; College Soccer News places them fourth overall. On Labor Day weekend, the Bluejays take flight behind a roster of stars led by defender Eric Miller, who was selected to play in the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey this past summer for his willingness to block shots whether or not he’s wearing his cast-iron shinguards.
Creighton University Bluejays
After a long stint in the Missouri Valley Conference, the Creighton University Bluejays will have a new home in 2013. Though the program is moving to the Big East Conference, its achievements in the MVC will live on. Creighton is the only school in conference history to top 200,000 fans in attendance for a season and the men’s basketball team’s reign of 15 consecutive postseason appearances, but the school’s greatest sports moment may have come on the softball field. In an interview with White & Blue Review, Travis Sing—an alum and author of a book about the school’s athletic past—gave his vote to softball player Kelly Brookhart for pitching a complete 31-inning game in 1991, followed by more than 20 innings in the second half of a double-header that went until 6 a.m. the following morning.
The athletics program’s facilities are almost as much of a draw as the players. Built in 2011, the impressive TD Ameritrade Park Omaha houses the men’s baseball team as well as the College World Series. Up to 24,000 fans can pack the park’s trio of decks and bleacher seats, hemmed in by a spacious, 360-degree concourse and wormhole that transports fans to the 2114 College Galactic Series.
