Emma Grome Wins Fifth SEC Setter of the Week Title
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky sophomore setter Emma Grome collected her fifth Southeastern Conference Setter of the Week title, the league office announced on Monday afternoon.
Grome had 46 assists Wednesday night as Kentucky beat Georgia in Athens for a road victory to hold pace with Florida atop the SEC standings.
With her 46 assists, it was tied for the most for Grome this season in any three-set match, as she averaged a mammoth 15.33 assists per set and notched her 13th match this year with 40+ assists, including 10 SEC matches with that total. Grome also had nine digs in Wednesday night’s match, one shy of her seventh double-double of the year.
Kentucky was idle this weekend and will return to action Friday night at 9 p.m. ET against Mississippi State on the road in Starkville. The match will be televised live on SEC Network and the ESPN app.
