Kansas volleyball rolls at Baylor


— Junior outside hitter Sara McClinton drilled one of the final kills for Kansas University, wrapping up a performance that powered her team to a four-set win at Baylor on Saturday afternoon, 25-16, 23-25, 25-22, 25-17.

In one of the most back-and-forth all-time series in the Big 12, Kansas (13-3, 3-0) and Baylor (8-11, 0-3) have split their season series in eight of the last nine years. While KU’s win at Baylor marks the team’s first win in Waco since 2010, it also marked the team’s ninth-straight win overall.

Kansas’ second nine-match winning streak in two years ties the fourth-longest in program history.

McClinton had 23 kills and zero errors for a .676 attack percentage — both career highs. She also registered a block assist and a solo block to lead all players with 24.5 points.

Fellow junior outside Chelsea Albers posted her fifth double-double of the season with 13 kills and 14 digs along with seven blocks. Sophomore Tiana Dockery had 11 kills. Freshman middle blocker Tayler Soucie had nine blocks, and senior Caroline Jarmoc had seven.

Kansas returns home for back-to-back matches, beginning with Oklahoma on Wednesday followed by fourth-ranked Texas on Saturday.

Congratulations, team!

We're fortunate that it's volleyball season (and, not some other season).

At least one kind of Baylor team isn't going to just destroy the entire Big 12 Team.

Congrats Girls! Let's pack the house against OU and Texas!

Congratulations on another Big XII win. Unlike another KU sports team, zero days and counting.

OU is the 31st team in the rankings, with only UT and ISU (25) ahead, and followed by Kansas State (33) Kansas (36). Makes the win in the lil' apple last week all the better, and big matches this week as well - especially at home.

Anyone shocked KU is 36 with the body of work ON the road they have done?

I was frustrated early but things are CLICKING!

Wouldn't the congratulations for the effort and results of the volleyball (or any other KU sports team) be even more sincere if the negative comments about other teams were omitted? Answer ~ damn right they would!!

Agreed. They are silly and unfortunate.
