Volleyball: #8 Kentucky upsets #1 Florida in Gainesville

History! Kentucky Topples No. 1 Florida in Gainesville

Wildcats knock off No. 1 ranked team for the first time in program history

 

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – History! For just the third time in Southeastern Conference history two top-10 ranked teams squared off. The No. 8 Kentucky volleyball team exited Gainesville, Florida, with more than just a 3-1 (25-20, 25-22, 23-25, 25-16) win over No. 1 Florida as a number of program records fell in the process.

 

For the first time in Kentucky volleyball history, the Wildcats topped the top-ranked team in the country. It is the third-consecutive win over the Gators on their home court; marking the first time in program history the Cats have achieved that feat. Florida was ranked in the top five in all three meetings. Kentucky has downed the Gators in three of its last four meetings which is the longest such streak since the Cats won six straight meetings from 1986 to 1990. The loss was the first of the season for Florida, which was the only remaining undefeated team in the country.

Photo essay from the Corbin-Bell County game

Corbin…..14…..22…..06…..00………….42

Bell………..00…..00…..00…..08………….08

Corbin used an explosive offense and a suffocating defense to pick up their sixth straight win over Bell County.  It sets up a district championship home game for the Redhounds against undefeated Casey County and guarantees that Bell County will open the playoffs on the road.

It was football homecoming night at Bell County.  Harlie Pannell was named homecoming queen.
