LEXINGTON, Ky. — Junior outside hitter Alli Stumler had 18 kills on Saturday afternoon and senior setter Madison Lilley tallied 48 assists as the No. 2 Kentucky Volleyball team swept Auburn on Sunday afternoon inside Memorial Coliseum, 3-0 (25-14, 25-16, 25-15) to keep its undefeated fall alive.

The Wildcats hit .385 on the season and held Auburn to just .149 in the match, as Stumler led a balanced offensive attack, in which she was the only UK player in double-figures for kills. Madi Skinner tallied a career-high nine kills and redshirt freshman Bella Bell had her finest night as a Wildcat, tallying six kills.

UK is now 5-0 on the season and will finish its Auburn series on Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. ET. The match will be televised live on the SEC Network, ESPN3 and the ESPN app with Courtney Lyle and Missy Whittemore on the call from Lexington.
