Last year, the Kentucky Volleyball team had their best season in program history, making it to the Elite Eight and finishing the year with a 29-4 final record and No. 6 overall ranking.
This season, however, the Cats got off to an 0-3 start, matching their entire regular season loss total from 2017.
For a program that returned many of their key players from last season, including star outside hitter Leah Edmond, the slow start was a shock for the Big Blue Nation.
Fortunately for the Cats, they’re cooking once again, finishing the weekend 3-0, including a victory yesterday against the Kansas Jayhawks.
Here are the highlights:
It was an eventful night, to say the least. Relive it through tonight's cut. ? pic.twitter.com/Ww9ShPuaCW

With the victory, the Wildcats took home the Bluegrass Battle crown, with Edmond winning MVP of the event.
Each of their three losses to start the year came against ranked foes, and Kentucky is still ranked No. 16 in the nation. With their three big victories this weekend, they have some momentum heading into their huge matchup against the No. 6 Texas Longhorns on Friday at 9:00 p.m.
Congratulations to the volleyball team on finding their groove again this weekend, and best of luck to them against Texas.
