Wednesday, November 6, 2019

Kansas volleyball powered its way to its 17th-consecutive victory in Lawrence against Texas Tech in a three-set sweep Wednesday night in the Horejsi Family Volleyball Arena.

KU and TTU were evenly matched to begin with, but the Jayhawks used a 17-13 kill advantage to edge past the Red Raiders 25-20 to take the 1-0 lead. Senior Zoe Hill and sophomore Camryn Ennis both recorded five kills to lead Kansas.

The second set was a close fight from start to finish, with a call being overturned in Texas Tech’s favor and bringing the Jayhawks lead down to only two points 18-16. Kansas finished with a 25-18 win.

The Jayhawks were in complete control of the third set as they never found themselves behind on their way to a 25-17 win. Ennis notched a team-high eight digs, six kills, three assists and six total blocks on the night.

Hill led the attack for the Jayhawks with a team-high nine kills and a team-best six total blocks. Freshman Morgan Christon and redshirt-senior Ashley Smith weren’t far behind Hill with eight and seven kills, respectively. Junior Sara Nielsen led the team with 29 assists.

Kansas travels to TCU at 5 p.m. Saturday.
