Missouri volleyball team wins at Kansas

Wednesday, November 2, 2011 | 10:17 p.m. CDT

The Missouri volleyball team defeated Kansas 26-25, 25-23, 23-25, 25-19 on Wednesday night in Lawrence, Kan.

The victory, which made the Tigers 19-9 overall and 5-6 in Big 12 Conference play, was also the 750th win for the coaching duo of Wayne and Susan Kreklow.

"Obviously we are excited to hit 750 wins, but the big thing is that this is another great win for us this season," head coach Wayne Kreklow said in a news release.

Sophomore outside hitter Lisa Henning was Missouri's top performer. She recorded 22 kills, while freshman Emily Wilson had 14 kills.

"The coaches are what makes us go, so it's really cool to be a part of that," Henning said by phone.

Henning also said a win over Kansas was important to maintain the team's momentum after beating Oklahoma.

The Missouri volleyball team will return to action in a match against Baylor at 2 p.m. Saturday at Hearnes Center.
