COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Behind a school record 27 kills from freshman Molly Haggerty, the sixth-ranked Wisconsin volleyball team swept No. 16 Texas A&M 25-16, 25-17, 25-22 on Friday evening.

Wisconsin improves to 7-1 on the season while Texas A&M falls to 6-5.

Haggerty had a career-high 27 kills in only three sets, breaking the old 25-point rally-scoring three-set mark of 19 kills by Elise Walch against Seton Hall in 2010. Haggerty’s mark ties the school 25-point rally-scored match record of 27 kills, set in five sets by Brittney Dolgner in 2007 and 2008.

The outside hitter had more than half of UW’s kills in the match as Wisconsin hit .315 (47 kills – 13 errors – 108 attempts) compared to .178 (35-17-101) for the Aggies.

The Badgers’ next leading hitter was Haleigh Nelson with six kills and Romana Kriskova with five kills.

Wisconsin outblocked Texas A&M 11 – 5 behind six blocks apiece from Lauren Carlini and Tionna Williams

UW also finished with a 45-40 advantage in digs. Junior Kelli Bates had a match-high 14 saves.

The Badgers wrap up the non-conference season on Sunday with a match at No. 2 Texas. First serve is at noon from Gregory Gym in Austin.
