No. 1 Baylor volleyball is one of the final four teams standing after defeating No. 8 Washington in four sets (25-20, 21-25, 25-19, 25-18) Saturday in the Waco Regional final.
The Bears victory over the Huskies at the Ferrell Center earned them a berth in the team’s first national semifinal in program history.
Junior outside hitter Yossiana Pressley owned the spotlight in the win, posting 24 kills with just three errors for a .512 clip. Pressley’s effort earned her the Most Outstanding Player Award for the regional. Head coach Ryan McGuyre said after the game that his “Player of the Year” showed up when they needed her most.
