Nebraska tops Florida, 3-1, wins fifth national title

The Nebraska women’s volleyball team downed Florida, 3-1, to win the national title Saturday night.

Nebraska won its final 19 matches en route to picking up the program’s fifth NCAA crown, the third-most in history, and second in the last three seasons, also taking the 2015 title in Omaha, Nebraska.

The Big Ten has won eight of the last 11 NCAA championships, including four of the last five. The Huskers won it the year before this run of dominance, in 2006, as a member of the Big 12.

Mikaela Foecke, Kelly Hunter and Kenzie Maloney were named to the all-tournament team, with the first two splitting the co-most outstanding player award.
