For the first time since 1990, Florida's team was swept as the 'Cats scored a 3-0 victory. The Wildcats made the trip to Gainesville and immediately took over Lemerand Athletic Center, winning the first set 25-17. Freshman Leah Edmond started the first set with a kill and ended the set with five, while sophomore Brooke Morgan recorded four blocks. Other stat leaders included eight assists for setter Olivia Dailey and five digs for sophomore Ashley Dusek. The second set was eerily similar. Edmond began the set with a kill, and continued to dominate Florida's defense. Kaz Brown, the 6'4 middle blocker, recorded six kills, four blocks and just one error. The Wildcats claimed this set 25-18. The Gators's urgency in the third set allowed them to take a quick lead which lasted until a Wildcat 5-1 run, tying the score at 14. After a tough third set, UK was able to score a 25-23 victory. Tonight's win put the Cats at 3-0 in SEC play. Their next game will be at 1:30 on Sunday, Oct. 2 against South Carolina in Columbia.
