Texas Volleyball Scores Big Weekend

The Lady Longhorns took giant steps to defend their National Championship by defeating #1 Penn State on Saturday 3-2 and #2 Stanford on Sunday 3-1 during the Nike Big Four Classic in Austin. In some tough matches, the Gregory Gazelles showed true grit battling two of the nation's top powerhouses. Though Texas' big weapons - Bailey Webster and Haley Eckerman - did not hit at their usual clip, the Lady Longhorns found some great defense and had multiple other players step up. Middles Khat Bell and Molly McCage provided big blocks. Freshman setter Chloe Collins was dynamic running down passes and setting up the offense. Fellow freshman Pilar Victoria shook off some beginner jitters to show her hitting prowess. Saturday's match against #1 Penn State had a record-setting crowd in attendance as Texas knocked off the Nittany Lions. Congrats to the Lady Longhorns! Hook 'em \m/
