Volleyball Secures SEC Road Win Over Texas A&M


COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Three Tigers finished in double-figures attacking as the University of Missouri volleyball team (10-5, 2-2 SEC) edged Texas A&M (10-4, 2-2 SEC), 3-1 (25-22, 25-22, 19-25, 25-21) Sunday afternoon at Reed Arena.

Colleyville, Texas, native, Janet deMarrais paced Mizzou with a career-best 18 kills and eight digs competing in her home state for the first time as a student-athlete. It marked the sophomore outside hitter’s fifth-straight double-digit kill outing (sixth in 2023).

With the win, Mizzou tied its SEC win total from the past two seasons (2021 and 2022). The victory also marked the Tigers first double-digit win season since 2020 (16-8, 15-7 SEC).
