Kentucky volleyball SWEEPS Ole Miss



Get your brooms out – Kentucky volleyball just swept Ole Miss. The No. 16 Wildcats remain as one of just two SEC teams still undefeated in conference play. They’ve extended their winning streak to nine straight games, making their record 12-4 for the season.

The win came inside Memorial Coliseum, where Coach Craig Skinner and the Cats came out firing early and never looked back. Kentucky jumped to a quick 5-0 lead during the first set and eventually won 25-21 after recording an impressive six aces. The Cats really came alive in the second set, with middle blocker Brooke Morgan and hitters Leah Edmond and Avery Skinner serving as the team’s standouts. In the back row, libero Gabby Curry and setter Madison Lilley were consistent forces for the Wildcats. The Cats won the set in a dominating fashion: 25-14.

Kentucky closed out the third set in the same way – a methodical attack on Ole Miss. UK won the final set 25-17, sealing the sweep for the Commonwealth. The win was extra special for the Wildcats, as several former Cats were in attendance.

Kentucky volleyball now goes on a road-game spree, traveling to LSU, Texas A&M and Georgia over the next two weeks. They’ll return to action in Lexington Oct. 28 to take on South Carolina in the annual “pink match.” The game is set to begin at 1:30 p.m.
