BOWLING GREEN – On Saturday, outside hitter Paige Briggs broke the program’s single match record for most kills in a match in the Tops’ 3-1 victory over Western Michigan. The Ortonville, Michigan native knocked down 35 kills, outhitting the previous set record by four, all good for a .484 hitting clip at the net.
Still a collective effort on offense, three players hit over .400 on the day, as setter Callie Bauer piled on 59 assists from the court. From the service line, Abby Schaefer led the pack with two of WKU’s five aces in the match. Briggs’ 35-kill outing marked the first 30+ kill match for a Hilltopper since Lauren Matthews stuck 30 against No. 21 Rice in 2022.
WKU 3, WMU 1: 25-17, 25-23, 19-25, 25-18
