CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The University of Miami volleyball team closed out the weekend with a three-set sweep of Virginia to earn its third ACC win of the season.

The Hurricanes (9-13, 3-7 ACC) closed the first two sets against the Cavaliers (4-18, 1-9 ACC), 25-19, 26-24, to head into the intermission leading two sets to none.

The Hurricanes came out of the break, taking an early 10-5 lead in the third set. Miami would continue to build off that momentum to close out the third set, 25-18, securing the match victory.

Junior Olga Strantzali paced Miami with a team-high 14 kills and nine digs during the match, while Anna Haak finished with 12 kills, seven digs and a block.

Lucia Pampana had five kills, three blocks and two digs. Fellow middle blocker Sakile Simmons recorded eight kills, five blocks and an assist.
