No. 6 Kentucky volleyball sweeps Ole Miss on Senior Day

No. 6 Kentucky volleyball dominated Ole Miss on Senior Day this afternoon, sweeping the Rebels to move to 24-3 (15-1 in the SEC) on the season.

Kaz Brown led the team in kills with 18, and Leah Edmond finished second with 17. Setter Madison Lilley recorded 47 assists, six digs, and two aces for the Wildcats. Senior Ashley Dusek led the team with 16 digs, as well.

Seniors Brown, Dusek, Emily Franklin, Harper Hempel, and Darian Mack were honored prior to the match.

According to UK Athletics, the volleyball team is in contention for their first SEC title since 1988, and is in position to host the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament. If the Wildcats win out, they could play the first four rounds of the NCAA Tournament inside Memorial Coliseum, setting themselves up for a massive run for the National Championship.

Kentucky will take on Arkansas in Fayetteville on Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m., and then will finish up the regular season against Georgia on Friday night at 5:00 p.m.

Finish this season strong, Cats!

    They just became the #1 team in the RPI, with Florida at #2. It sets both teams up to host at home all the way to the Final 4.
