TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The Alabama volleyball team picked up its first Southeastern Conference victory of the season Sunday with a 3-0 sweep (25-19, 25-18, 25-16) of South Carolina in the CAVE. The win brings the Crimson Tide to 9-8 overall and 1-6 against league opponents, while the loss drops the Gamecocks to 4-13 on the season and 1-6 in the SEC.

Sophomore Kayla Fitterer topped all attackers in the match with 17 kills. She also managed just one error off her 30 attempts for an overall hitting percentage of .533. Senior Kayla Schmidt and junior Stephanie Riley combined for 30 of Alabama's 36 assists, while sophomore Kelsey Anderson collected a team-high 10 digs. Redshirt sophomore Leigh Moyer was solid at the net for the Tide getting a hand in four of Alabama's six blocks.
