Lady Vols hand Winthrop a loss

UT swept Winthrop (25-13, 25-24, 25-17) in their first match of the Rocky Top Invitational. More soon.

UPDATE: Tessa Grubbs had 12 kills on 30 attacks, hitting .300, while Erica Treiber had 10 kills hitting .333. Treiber put down 5 blocks and Breana Jeter added 4 more. Sedona Hansen had 20 assists. Callie Williams put up 15 assists and had the only 3 aces of the match. Brooke Schumacher had 18 digs, Hansen just missed the double double with 9.

Schumacher’s 18 digs moved her into the UT all time career digs top ten list with 1,121.

Tennessee held the Eagles to a .000 hitting percentage — the second time they’ve done that to an opponent in the four matches played so far this season.

The Lady Vols have won their last three matches in sweeps — the first time they’ve had three in a row since 2012.
