Lady Vols top Aggies for win #20

Tennessee got win #20 with a victory over Texas A&M this evening (25-21, 25-12, 23-25, 25-19). More tonight.

Tessa Grubbs led both teams with 18 kills. Lily Felts had 10, Erica Treiber 8, and Addisyn Rowe and Danielle Mahaffey 7 each. Five players hit over .350 with at least five attempts: Rowe at .500, Treiber at .467, Alyssa Andreno at .429, Mahaffey at .375, and Grubbs at .361. Only one UT match since 2001 had more players do that. The team had a very slow start blocking but eventually found the floor. Treiber led the team with 4; Andreno had 2. Sedona Hansen put up 26 assists and Callie Williams had 19. Brooke Schumacher led the team in digs with 12.

Tennessee has won 20 matches in a season for the first time since 2015, the 11th time in the rally-scoring era, and the 23rd time in program history.

The Lady Vols got their 20th win in their 25th match of the year — that ties for the fifth fastest time to the milestone in school history.
