COLUMBIA -- The Mizzou volleyball team improved to 14-5 on the season and 6-3 in SEC play after sweeping Mississippi State, 3-0 (25-15, 25-21, 25-19), on Sunday afternoon at the Hearnes Center. Junior All-American Lisa Henning led a balanced Tiger attack as she tallied a match-high 14 kills on .306 hitting while pulling in eight digs with five blocks.

"I was very pleased with our effort and the way that we played in the first set, but I thought we got a little sloppy and lackadaisical from there," head coach Wayne Kreklow said. "Any time you can get a win over a conference opponent, we'll take them, but I thought we weren't quite focused and ready to play after the first set."

Aside from Henning, sophomore Emily Wilson also had a huge match on Sunday, posting 10 kills on .391 hitting with four blocks. Freshman Regan Peltier supplied a bit of the Tiger offense as well, posting five kills on 17 swings while pulling in 10 digs, marking her third straight match with at least 10 digs. Peltier also added a solo block and two block assists in the win.

Staying on the topic of blocking, the Tigers again went over the 10-block plateau on Sunday, posting 12 in the three sets. Mizzou has now eclipsed the 10-block mark in seven straight matches and eight of nine SEC matches as the Tigers continue to lead the SEC on blocking this season. Sophomore middle hitter Melissa Hartsel did most of the damage for the Tigers as she tallied a season-best and match-high six blocks (one solo, five assists). Henning added five, Wilson finished with four and junior setter Molly Kreklow and Peltier each added three blocks.

Kreklow as always was impressive on Sunday, spreading 29 assists while pitching in three kills, a team-best 12 digs and three blocks. The back row was anchored by sophomore libero Sarah Meister who finished with 12 digs in the match, her third straight 10-dig match and her eighth in nine SEC matches.

Mizzou will be back in action next weekend as they Ole Miss and Auburn in a crucial SEC road weekend.
