ALLIANCE, Ohio – Mount Union senior Taylor Webb (Geneva/Geneva) became the 11th player in Mount Union history to record 1,000 career kills as the Mount Union volleyball team, ranked No. 9 in the nation, defeated Transylvania (Ky.) and Alma (Mich.) Friday in day one of the Purple Raider Classic.

The Raiders improved to 11-0 with the two wins on Friday as Webb recorded 12 kills in the first match against Transylvania that pushed her into the elite club of 1,000 career kills.
