The No. 8 North Carolina volleyball team continues to roll, sweeping Louisville on Sunday (25-11, 25-21, 25-17) to stay undefeated in the ACC.
UNC (16-2, 8-0 ACC) entered Sunday with a 6-3 all-time record against Louisville (6-11, 1-6 ACC), with the last loss coming in 1992.
While the Tar Heels’ match against Notre Dame was all about the defense, Sunday’s contest was an offensive showdown.
UNC came out hot in the first set with a kill by redshirt senior Taylor Treacy and never looked back. Five aces, three from senior Sheila Doyle, gave the Tar Heels an edge on their way to take the first set 25-11.
After starting off up 6-3 in the second set, crucial errors hurt the Tar Heels and allowed the Cardinals to tie it 8-8. It was a sloppy affair for both teams, with 13 ties and six lead changes during the set. Despite putting up seven attacking errors and three service errors, the Tar Heels were able to squeak out the 25-21 win.
