From our Razorback family to yours, here is recap on what you may have missed this fall….

For the first time since 2015, two Razorbacks were recognized by the league office as Offensive Player of the Week (Jill Gillen) and Setter of the Week (Gracie Ryan). The duo helped the Hogs sweep No.14 Texas A&M last weekend to close out the fall season at 6-2.

The Razorbacks defeated No.14 Texas A&M, 3-1 (29-31, 25-20, 26-24, 25-20) to stay undefeated at home (4-0) and finish its fall slate, 6-2.
