LINCOLN, Neb. – The No. 1 Nebraska volleyball team made quick work of Montana State in a 25-15, 25-5, 25-16 sweep on Friday in NU’s first match of the Ameritas Players Challenge. The morning session attendance was 7,922. Creighton defeated Gonzaga, 3-0, in the first match of the tournament.

Olivia Boender fired home a career-high 16 kills on a career-best .727 hitting to lead the Huskers (7-0) to their sixth straight sweep and 23rd straight win. The Huskers hit .544, the third-best hitting percentage in school history, and held the Bobcats (2-5) to .099. Boender’s 16 kills on 22 error-free swings were the second-most kills without an error by a Husker in the John Cook era. Christina Houghtelling (2004) and Melissa Elmer (2005) each posted 17 kills without an error.

Nebraska also got eight kills and three blocks from Briana Holman and seven kills from Kadie Rolfzen. Kelly Hunter had 31 assists and two aces, and Justine Wong-Orantes had 10 digs.
