No. 2 Washington (Mo.) sweeps NYU
Roundup: No. 4 Emory wins 3-1, extends its winning streak to 19
ST. LOUIS, Mo.-- It was an historic afternoon for Washington-St. Louis as the Bears picked up a 3-0 victory against New York University at the University Athletic Association (UAA) round robin of the season.
The Bears saw an individual and team milestone set with the win against New York. Senior middlehitter Lauren Budde finished the match with a team-high 14 kills to go along with four digs, becoming just the eighth student-athlete in program history to reach 1,000 career kills and digs.
The Bears also improved their overall record to 17-0 and won their 51st consecutive set in the process. The previous school record of 48 consecutive set wins came during the 1996 season when the Bears posted 16 consecutive sweeps from Oct. 14-Nov. 18. Washington-St. Louis now sits just six sets shy of the all-time Division III record of 57 consecutive sets, set by Wisconsin-Oshkosh in 2007.
