The 18th ranked Tar Heel Volleyball team swept the Carolina Classic in Chapel Hill and improve their record to 9-0 on the season.

Not only did North Carolina win three matches in the Classic, they swept all three.

It started with a win against George Washington on Friday night. The Heels rolled 25-14, 25-23, 25-10. It was Kayla Barringer with 11 kills leading North Carolina. Ece Taner had 16 defensive digs in the match.

On Saturday, Carolina defeated James Madison, 25-21, 25-22, 25-23. Once again it was Kayla Barringer leading the way with 14 kills and 3 blocks. The Dukes were strong in each set with the results coming down to a handful of points but it was the Heels prevailing with the victory.

In the nightcap on Saturday, North Carolina concluded their sweep with a 25-13, 25-10, 25-14 victory over Albany. It was Jovana Bjelica with 11 kills leading UNC to the win.

Kayla Barringer was the MVP of the Classic and the Tar Heels equal their best start since 1981.

Carolina will look to continue their undefeated start with two games against two Big Ten teams at home in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. They will meet Illinois on Friday and Indiana on Saturday.
