Creighton volleyball was back at DJ Sokol Arena Sunday afternoon as the Jays hosted St. John's. 

Senior outside hitter Jaali Winters started the day six kills away from becoming the school's record-holder for career kills. 

In the second set Winters kill to give the Bluejays the 14-10 lead gave her sole possession of the career kills mark at Creighton.

"Yeah it was a really special moment," Winters said. "It's given me a moment to reflect on my career here and be grateful for choosing Creighton when I was 16 years old."

"That's a pretty big record that doesn't get broken very often," said Creighton Head Coach Kirsten Bernthal Booth. "A lot of these guys have records but that's a big one."

Winters finished the day with 1,633 career kills as the tenth-ranked Bluejays defeated St. John's 3-0. 

With the win Creighton remains undefeated in BIG EAST play.
