VolleyHogs defeat highest ranked opponent since 2007

·1 min read

It wasn’t enough, just enough, to host the highest ranked opponent. Arkansas turned the challenge into a big win for the program.

The VolleyHogs defeated No. 8 Washington, 3-1, claiming their biggest win against a top-ten opponent since the program’s win against No. 5 Florida in 2015.

The Huskies made a push in the fourth set but the VolleyHogs held their composure.

“Initially, when we came in, we were a little concerned that we didn’t have the time that we needed to prep,” head coach Jason Watson said. “Proud of our team, I thought they played well and composed themselves, especially in that fourth set when they were making a run at us, it was a little bit of a challenge there, but I thought that was really mature volleyball at the end of the match.”

This was the first time two schools played each other since 2005, with VolleyHogs owning the all-time series lead 2-1.
