While the football team was taking care of business vs. Louisville, the volleyball team was winning its third-straight SEC Championship at Memorial Coliseum, sweeping Ole Miss 3-0 (25-21, 25-20, 25-13). This is Kentucky’s seventh conference title overall, and a fitting sendoff for seniors Caitlyn Cooper, Leah Edmond, Leah Meyer and Kylie Schmaltz, who were honored in a pregame Senior Day ceremony.
Sometimes, just two words are enough.
To Leah, Leah, Caitlyn & Kylie:

Congrats to Craig Skinner and his squad for yet another incredible season. So much UK Athletics success right now.
