COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Mizzou Volleyball tallied a 3-0 (25-22, 25-18, 25-19) victory over Georgia on Friday, wrapping up its season sweep over the Bulldogs. The Tigers' win moved their home record to a perfect 10-0 this season.

"We came out a little slow in each of the sets tonight, but we regrouped well late to come away with three set victories," head coach Wayne Kreklow said. "Any conference match is going to be tough and Georgia played well throughout the night. We saw contributions from a lot of players tonight and I think that was a big factor in our sweep."

The trio of junior Carly Kan (Honolulu, Hawaii), redshirt sophomore Kira Larson (Fargo, N.D.) and freshman Alyssa Munlyn (Suwanee, Ga.) paced the Tigers' attack against Georgia. Kan finished with a team-best 13 kills, Larson tallied 11 kills on .391 hitting and Munlyn produced nine kills on a career-high .727 hitting.

Behind strong second and third sets, junior Emily Thater (Springfield, Mo.) finished with seven kills on .429 hitting and three total blocks.

Kan's 13 kills moved her over 400 for the season, marking her second 400-plus kill campaign as a Tiger. Additionally, Kan now stands with 1,358.5 career points, moving her into ninth place in the career points standings in program history.

Senior Regan Peltier (Nixa, Mo.) continued her solid senior year with her 182nd kill of the season, setting a new single-season kill total.
