Lady Vols get win on senior night

Tennessee got the seniors a win in their last match at home (25-18, 25-18, 23-25, 25-15). I’m heading out of town for Thanksgiving and will be without internet until the weekend. (Not thankful for that!) So more details this in a few days.

UPDATE: Lily Felts and Tessa Grubbs led the offense with 14 kills each. Addisyn Rowe added 10 more. Six players had 2 blocks apiece: Alyssa Andreno, Sedona Hansen, Felts, Rowe, Grubbs, and Danielle Mahaffey. Hansen had 47 of the team’s 50 assists. Wearing the libero jersey, Asha Phillips smashed her career high on senior night with 28 digs. Giana Pellizzon added 15 more, Felts 14 (for the double-double), and Madison Coulter 10.

Tennessee is now 7-3 all-time the day before Thanksgiving. They are 13-6 on Senior Day in the rally-scoring era.

Phillips’ 28 digs are the 36th most by a UT player in program history. She’s just the 15th different Lady Vol to ever reach 28 digs in a match.

UT hasn’t had 6 different players put down multiple blocks in a match in two years.

This was win #40 for Eve Rackham.
