Nebraska outside hitter Amber Rolfzen was honored by the Big Ten Conference as she was named the league’s Co-Freshman of the Week. The honor marks her first career Freshman of the Week award as she shares the accolade with Purdue’s Faye Adelaja.
Rolfzen led Nebraska to victories over Saint Mary’s (3-1), Dayton (3-0) and Iowa State (3-0) over the weekend in the Ameritas Players Challenge. She produced double-doubles in all three matches, averaging 3.6 kills and 3.5 digs per set. Rolfzen also tallied a career-high 16 kills against Saint Mary’s and was named the most valuable player of the tournament.
