Tops sweep two Power Five opponents on same day for first time in program history
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – No. 15 WKU Volleyball achieved yet another program first as the Hilltoppers swept two Power Five teams on the same day for the first time in program history on Saturday. WKU downed both Kansas and Wake Forest to close play in the Lipscomb-hosted LUV Invite and improve to 6-0 on the season.
“I continue to be amazed by this group,” opened head coach Travis Hudson following the Hilltoppers’ win over Wake Forest. “For the things that make our program special, today we put that on display. We played the late game last night and had to grind and didn’t play particularly well and we had to get up to this challenge. I told you we don’t make excuses and you saw a bunch of kids out there that didn’t. We played back-to-back Power Five schools and our third match in less than 24 hours but we just continue to get better and better.”
“Man, our program is special,” continued Hudson. “And too many times when people think this program is special, my name comes up and it’s not me, it’s a group of kids that just love wearing that jersey and care a lot about me, this program and each other and it’s just a really special thing.”
Nadia Dieudonne earned LUV Invite MVP honors while Lauren Matthews and Paige Briggs joined her on the All-Tournament Team.
