With the highest ranking in program history the Creighton volleyball team prepares to host its own tournament beginning Friday. The Bluejays are ranked seventh in the coaches poll after posting a 3-0 record in a tournament at Washington. It included an impressive win over third ranked Washington.
“We felt going in that we had capabilities of doing good things there.”, said Creighton coach Kirsten Bernthal Booth. “But it’s one win. It was a great win and a great resume builder but as a staff and a team we have moved on.”
The Bluejay Invitational will feature four unbeaten teams. Northern Iowa will play 18th ranked USC in Friday’s opener before the Jays go up against 13th rated Kentucky.
“I think it is probably the best tournament in the country this weekend”, added Bernthal Booth. “It is going to be great volleyball and we hope we are selling out ever match. If you love volleyball this is the place to be this weekend.”
