The Scouting Report
For the third season in a row, Big East coaches have consulted the rosters, gazed into their Magic 8 balls, and picked the Creighton women’s volleyball team to win the conference title. Last year, the Blue Jays certainly made good on those predictions, sweeping the Big East regular-season and tournament titles en route to a third-straight NCAA Tournament appearance. This season’s squad features four returning starters and 11 letter winners, and three of its players have already been named to the preseason All-Conference team, including Kate Elman, Lauren Smith, and Jess Bird. In fact, Bird recently claimed preseason Player of the Year honors. She’ll lead the Blue Jays into a total of 16 regular-season home matches this fall as well as the Bluejay Invitational on the second weekend in September.
Creighton University Bluejays
After a long stint in the Missouri Valley Conference, the Creighton University Bluejays have a new home. Though the program has moved 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.
