UAM swept Southeastern in a conference match tonight

MONTICELLO, Ark. – The University of Arkansas at Monticello volleyball team dominated from start to finish in their Great American Conference matchup tonight against Southeastern Oklahoma State University, en route to a three-set victory (25-19, 28-26, 25-23).

Each team exchanged points until UAM used a block by Mikaela Brown and Riley Krenek to win the second set, 28-26.

The third set was another back-and-forth affair as each team took turns holding leads until a Tori Hamilton kill gave UAM a 22-21 advantage over the Savage Storm. The Blossoms would continue to extend their lead until a Mia Smalls kill sealed the victory for the hosts, 25-23.
