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.

Leah Edmond had a double-double with 13 kills and 10 digs. Stumler also finished in double figures, with 11 kills. Madison Lilley had 38 assists on 47 of Kentucky’s kills in the match. Junior libero Gabby Curry had 10 digs and finishes the regular season with 25 out of 29 matches with double-figure digs.

The 2019 NCAA Volleyball Selection Show will be on Sunday at 8:30 p.m. ET. It will be televised live on ESPNU, and Kentucky will be hosting a watch party inside of Memorial Coliseum with the doors opening at 8 p.m. ET. Admission is free and fans will be able to watch the brackets unveiled with the team.

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