The BYU women’s volleyball team’s future is looking bright as they are headed in to the final games of their schedule.
The team is still undefeated, and setting milestones in their career.
Lyndie Haddock-Eppich accomplished over 3,000 career assists as the No. 1 BYU women’s volleyball teams swept Portland 3-0 on Thursday.
Haddock-Eppich only needed 14 assists to hit 3,000 going into the Portland game. And verses the Pilots, she snagged 34 assists along with seven digs, five blocks, four kills and an ace. She is the fifth BYU player in program history to accomplish this feat.
ESPN recently released a story on the undefeated team.
“It certainly looks as if they will head into the NCAA tournament unbeaten, given they’ve lost one set against West Coast Conference competition.”
And the statistics prove that. The team has had 18 sweeps this season. They are still undefeated in matches. No team has surpassed beating them by one set.
According the ESPN article, they said, Oregon coach Matt Ulmer wouldn’t be surprised if the Cougars are the last team standing at the final four. BYU ended Oregon’s season last year in a second-round sweep in the national tournament.
“Ulmer catches as many BYU matches as he can. He regards Jones-Perry and Stanford’s Kathryn Plummer as the two best hitters in the nation. He touts Jones-Perry for improved vision, shot selection and more precise passing than a year ago when she posted 27 kills in the sweep of the Ducks.”
So, it certainly looks like the Cougars have what it takes to make it all the way. You can read the whole ESPN article here.
