The UNC volleyball team earned its first sweep of the season on Friday night in Raleigh, defeating the rival NC State Wolfpack 3-0 (25-20, 25-20, 25-18) behind a balanced offensive attack.

Amanda Phegley led the Tar Heels (3-2) with eight kills in the match, while Carly Peck and Aziah Buckner each added seven to the winning cause.

NC State (0-3) received 14 kills from Jade Parchment, but that would not ultimately be enough to get the Wolfpack their first win of the season.

The Tar Heels also nearly doubled NC State’s hitting percentage, posting a .208 mark while holding the Wolfpack to a .098 percentage defensively.

UNC also put together a season-high 13.5 blocks in the win.
