COLUMBIA - The MU volleyball team remained undefeated this weekend by beating SEC opponents Auburn and Alabama.
The sixth ranked Tigers started their four game road trip on Friday against Auburn. They swept Auburn in three straight sets (25-17, 25-21, 25-22) and improved to a national best 28-0. Senior setter Molly Kreklow led the team with 42 assists on 52 kills.
Sunday night the team faced a tougher challenge in Alabama. The Tigers held off the Crimson Tide with 19 blocks to win three sets to one (25- 22, 24-26, 25-20, 25-12).
