Senior middle blocker Taylour Toso broke the program kill record on Oct. 24 in the volleyball team’s game against UMHB. The Comets won the match in three sets, going 25-16, 25-14 and 25-13.
The previous record of 1, 264, held by former player Dana HIlzendager, had stood for the last two years.
Toso, who finished the night with 12 kills, said the next day that the credit for her success went to the team.
“I couldn’t have done it without the great passing that we had last night,” Toso said. “The better our passes, the more attempts that I get. I think it just shows how much the program has come in the four years that I’ve been here. To reach a record like that in four years is a really big deal.”
Toso’s 301 kills this season lead the team and rank third overall in the ASC. She also leads the team with 376 points.
After breaking the single-season record for kills last year, Toso was named the ASC Most Valuable Player and first team All-ASC last year.
Head coach Marci Sanders said the hard work Toso had put in over the last four years helped her to get to this point.
“She’s put in so much hard work over the last four years, “ Sanders said. “We’ve challenged her, I think, beyond her comfort zone a lot of the times. She’s matured so much.”
