KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – The Tennessee Lady Vols volleyball team started the season with a bang. After sweeping Texas Tech on Friday, Tennessee brought out the brooms against East Tennessee State and North Carolina State on Saturday.
“I love the offensive balance that we had, you know, we take one match at a time,” said Lady Vols head coach Eve Rackham Watt. “I’m sure every coach says that, but really, it’s just especially on the weekend where you play three matches in two days, it’s just, you go match by match and early in the season you’re really just trying to learn about yourself and you know learn what your team needs to work on
Knoxville native Lily Felts played a huge part with 11 kills against ETSU and then another 12 against North Carolina State. That’s three straight matches with double-digit kills to start the season for the junior.
Morgahn Fingall showed up for the Lady Vols in their nightcap Saturday. The junior tallied 16 kills against NC State, just one off her career-high.
The Lady Volunteers’ next match will be on Friday against the Baylor Bears at 6:30 p.m.
