Jarmoc stars again as KU volleyball completes tourney sweep

Sunday, September 2, 2012

Kansas University junior Caroline Jarmoc had a career game for the second day in a row, and the Jayhawks completed a sweep of the Kansas Invitational with a four-set victory over Arkansas State, Saturday at Horejsi Center.

Jarmoc, who set a career high in kills with 16 on Friday against Sam Houston State, repeated the feat against Arkansas State in the 25-19, 28-30, 25-15, 25-17 victory.

Jarmoc also contributed nine blocks and earned tournament MVP honors.

“Offensively, people had a hard time answering her,” KU coach Ray Bechard said. “She continues to pick it up on defense and was changing the game with her block. She also created opportunities for us with her serve. She gave a well-rounded effort this weekend.”

Two other Jayhawks, Sara McClinton and Erin McNorton, joined Jarmoc on the all-tournament team.

McClinton, a sophomore, had 11 kills Saturday against the Red Wolves, while McNorton, a junior, had 136 assists in the three-game tournament.

The Jayhawks (5-1) will take on UMKC next, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Horejsi Center.
