Creighton University’s Julianne Mandolfo was named the Missouri Valley Conference Volleyball Freshman of the Week. Mandolfo, an Omaha native, averaged 6.75 digs, 0.38 aces and 0.75 assists per set as Creighton split a pair of matches last weekend.
Mandofo had a career-high 27 digs in a four-set match vs. No. 16 UNI on Friday. She then tied that high with 27 digs vs. Bradley on Saturday, adding five assists and a career-best three aces.
The Bluejays, 8-6 overall and 3-1 in the Missouri Valley Conference, are tied for second in the league heading into this weekend’s trip to Illinois State and Indiana State.
