The Butler University volleyball team continued their winning ways, defeating Seton Hall University in straight sets on Oct. 7. Head coach Sharon Clark earned her career 300th victory.

Butler improved to 14-5 (4-3 Big East) with the victory over the Pirates. Senior setter Makayla Ferguson set the table with a team-high 42 assists and eight digs.

“We were passing really well, which allowed us to run a fast offense,” Ferguson said. “We kept Seton Hall guessing on where the set was going. We kept our energy high, executed on the crucial plays and never gave up.”

Junior middle blocker Bri Lilly hit .526 and posted 11 kills on 19 attempts. Junior outside hitter Anna Logan added a double-double, recording 13 kills and 11 digs. Logan said the momentum from last night’s four-set win over St. John’s University carried into tonight’s match.

“We came out fiery and were relentless serving,” Logan said. “We never backed down tonight.

Clark said the Bulldogs made smart plays in her 300th victory.

“We really wanted to stay focused on finishing the game,” Clark said. “We needed this. It wasn’t playing harder, it was playing smarter. I applaud them for that.”

The Bulldogs will travel to Omaha, Nebraska, to face Creighton University on Oct. 13. First serve is slated for 8 p.m.
