The Texas Tech volleyball team swept SMU in the first round of the National Invitational Volleyball Championship Thursday night in San Marcos.

"I'm proud of this group for being the team that did it," Head Coach Tony Graystone said of earning another milestone. "All week we could feel that momentum building and the community really on board with us. That part was really fun, and I'm glad that we performed this way."
