COLUMBIA - The Mizzou volleyball team improved to 14-4 on the season after defeating Texas A&M, 3-1 (23-25, 25-23, 26-24, 25-23), in a close match on Saturday afternoon (Sept. 24) at the Hearnes Center.  Sophomore outside hitter Lisa Henning lead the way with a career-best and match-high 21 kills. Senior libero Priscilla Armendariz  also posted a career-high as she pulled in a match-high 25 digs. She is now the 11th player in school history to surpass 1,000 career digs.

Head Coach Wayne Kreklow was impressed with his team saying, "there were a lot of times during the match where it looked like Texas A&M was going to pull away, but we did a nice job of battling back and we continued to score points when we needed to. I was really pleased with how they fought back against Texas A&M, which is a really good team."

Aside from the offensive production that Mizzou got from Henning, freshman Emily Wilson had a great night with 16 kills on .310 hitting while pitching in five blocks (three solo, two assists). Sophomore setter Molly Kreklow also had one of her best matches of the season with 53 assists and 11 digs, good for her fifth double-double of the season.


Defensively, Armendariz led the way with her 25 digs, but freshman Jade Hayes also finished in double figures with 10 digs.

The win for the Tigers is their third straight over Texas A&M after taking both meetings last season. Mizzou will return home on Wednesday night to face Kansas State for the annual Pink Out meet.
