Huskers win Arby’s Classic
By Mitch Sherman
Fridays and Saturdays arc begin
ning to seem like the easiest workouts
of the week for the Nebraska volley
Since an August loss to defending
national champion Stanford, the top
ranked Comhuskers had not been chal
lenged heading into this weekend’s
Arby’s Classic, having ripped through
seven straight opponents.
Make it nine straight.
Nebraska easily swept Baylor on
Friday and George Washington on
Saturday, capturing its fourth tourna
ment title in as many weeks.
Against GW, a team that pushed
the Huskers in the second round of the
NCAA Tournament a year ago, Ne
braska dominated, winning 15-5, 15
7,15-1 before a season-high crowd of
4,256 fans at the NU Coliseum.
“I thought we played pretty well,”
said senior middle blocker Allison
Weston, the tournament’s most valu
able player. “We stayed organized.
Defensively, we pursued more balls
than we normally do. We were all
pretty focused on what we needed to
The 10-1 Huskers kept the
Colonials off balance early, jumping
to a quick 6-0 lead in the first game
and forcing 6-loot-4 Russia-native
Svetlana Vtyurina out of her game.
Vtyurina — who has dominated op
ponents this season with match totals
of 56 kills and 46 kills — had just 13
kills and hit .073 on Saturday.
The Colonials, 10-4, got as close as
9-4 in game one, but Nebraska scored
six of the final seven points to win.
Eight service errors plagued the
Huskers in the second game, but Ne
braska managed to capitalize on Co
lonial mistakes, erasing a 3-0 deficit
to lake a 10-4 lead. GW cut the score
to 13-7 before a Weston kill and a
Maria Hedbeck service ace ended the
“Serving is such an easy skill, but
it’s all mental,” Weston said. “So if
you arc not in it, you are going to miss
Senior Billie Winsett, who, along
with Weston and sophomore Lisa
Reitsma, was named to the all-tourna
ment team, corrected Nebraska’s ser
vice problems in the third game. With
Winsett serving, the Huskers rattled
off 10 straight points.
The Colonials scored once on an
errant hit by Husker outside hitter
Kate Cmich, but Nebraska sided out
and freshman Jaime Krondak served
out the match, finishing GW with an
Against Baylor, Nebraska played
without senior setter Christy Johnson.
Johnson, who played Saturday, was
held out for the first time in 41 matches
because of a twisted ankle.
Freshman Fiona Nepo Filled in and
led the Huskers to a 15-3,15-6, 15-7
win over the Bears.
Cross country team prepares for Invite
From Staff Reports
The Nebraska cross country team
held out its top runners Saturday at
the Doanc Invitational.
But the bright spot for the
Comhuskcrs was Melissa Wilson,
who finished sixth overall. Wilson
earned a spot on the travel team for
next Saturday’s Minnesota Invita
tional in Minneapolis.
Even though Wilson will travel
to Minnesota, Coach Jay Dirkscn
said he was happy with all the run
ners’ efforts. He said it was a really
good meet for the people who went.
“Our first real test will come at
the Minnesota Invite,” Dirksen said.
“We’ve been practicing hard all

ITS NOT EVERY DAY
YOU GET A COMPLIMENT
A1 financial companies charge operating fees
and expenses — some more than others. Of
course, the lower the expenses you pay, the bet
ter. That way more of your money goes where it
should—towards building a comfortable future.
We make low expenses a high priority.
Because of our size and our exclusive focus
on serving the needs of educational and research
communities, TIAA-CREF s costs are among the
lowest in the insurance and mutual fund indus
In fact, Morningstar, Inc. —one of the
nation's leading sources of variable annuity and
mutual fund information—says, "Size isn’t a con
straint; it...enables CREF to realize a remarkable
economy of scale.”2 According to Morningstar s
data, CREF’s "minuscule” 0.31% average fund
expense charge was less than half that charged
by comparable funds.3 .
TIAA’s traditional annuity also charges no
fees aside from a very modest operating expense
of 1/4 of 1% of annuity assets. Interest and divi
dends are reported after all operating costs have
been deducted. Standard & Poors calls TIAA’s
costs "exceptionally low.”''
Of course, expenses are only one factor to
consider when you make an investment decision.
While we re committed to keeping our expenses
down, we spare nothing in striving to provide
top-quality investment choices, financial exper
tise, and personal service. Because that can make
a difference in the long run, too.
TIAA-CREF seeks performance, not profit.
At TIAA-CREF, we believe people would
like to spend more on retirement, not on their
retirement company. If you’d like to see how
our approach can help keep mqre of your money
