Undefeated Badgers Volleyball clinches Big Ten Title in weekend sweep of No. 24 Michigan
MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin volleyball team completed a 'perfect' regular season in Madison this weekend as the Badgers clinched a Big Ten title and finished the regular season undefeated for the first time in program history with a sweep of the No. 24 Michigan Wolverines.
In a season unlike any other, the No. 1 Badgers (15-0, 15-0 B1G) ended the regular season with a 25-20, 25-14, 25-18 sweep of the No. 24 Wolverines (4-9. 4-9 B1G) at the UW Field House in Madison on Friday afternoon.
Senior Grace Loberg had a dominant outing Friday, setting a new career high with five service aces, more than half of the team's total of nine, while the Badgers held the Wolverines to only four aces.
The Badgers dominated the conference this season, defeating five AP Top-25 opponents during the regular season.
UW and the rest of the NCAA field played a shortened, conference-only season due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020-21.
The Badgers are seeking the program's first national championship as the projected top-ranked team in the NCAA Tournament in April.
