Texas sweeps Louisville to win the 2022 NCAA volleyball national championship

Ohio State prevents Penn State volleyball comeback, winning in five sets

OMAHA, Nebraska — Texas’ wait is over. The Longhorns are back on top.

The Longhorns won their first national title since 2012, sweeping Louisville (25-22, 25-14, 26-24) to take the 2022 NCAA women’s volleyball championship. Texas had come close previously, falling in the final three times since 2015.

Texas (28-1) got a huge match from star Logan Eggleston — the AVCA National Player of the Year — as she recorded 19 kills and hit .341 in the match. But it was a team effort, as Madi Skinner (12 kills, ..407 hitting) and Asjia O’Neal (9 kills, .643 hitting) also hit efficiently. Setter Saige Ka’aha’aina-Torres had 37 assists in the match.
