After getting ranked in the top 25 in the nation, the Arkansas Razorbacks volleyball team dropped their last two matches to conference opponents. However, a bright spot for this team has been junior outside hitter Pilar Victoria.

Victoria had a team-high 26 kills in the loss against Tennessee, which pushed her into the top 10 in the nation in kills per set. The junior is averaging 4.59 kills per set for the Razorbacks, which is good for No. 10 in the nation.

Not only does Victoria lead the team in kills per set, but she leads in total points with 327 and is tied for first in service aces with 15.

The Razorbacks have had one of the best starts in its history and Victoria has been an integral part in the team’s successful run.

Arkansas will try to bounce back from its losses when they host Ole Miss on Sunday, Oct. 18 at 4 p.m. at Barnhill Arena.
