By the numbers: Recounting Creighton's historic two-year run

Creighton’s Jaela Zimmerman was an AVCA honorable mention pick, marking the ninth straight season a Bluejay made the All-America team.

The junior out of Malcolm led the Jays with 3.45 kills per set and shared the team lead with 15 aces. She was second with 2.71 digs per set.

Zimmerman was also an All-Big East pick for the second straight season and the AVCA East Region player of the year.

This is the first time Zimmerman was named an All-American by the AVCA, though she was named an All-American last season by VolleyballMag.com.

Also on the honorable mention team was High Point libero Abby Bottomley, who is transferring to play in the fall.

Creighton finished 12-4 and made its ninth straight trip to the NCAA tournament.
