An undefeated weekend moved East Carolina volleyball into a tie for third place in the American Athletic Conference standings on Sunday.

The Pirates got there by adding to Friday’s 3-1 victory at Temple with another 3-1 win Sunday, this time at Connecticut with scores of 20-25, 25-23, 25-17 and 25-20. It put the Pirates (12-6) at 4-2 in the American and in a three-way tie with Temple and Cincinnati behind league unbeaten squads Wichita State and SMU.

ECU also is 6-2 in its last eight matches.

“We definitely had to work for this win, but I am proud of the way we responded after the first set,” ECU coach Julie Torbett said in a release. “Connecticut had a great game plan and deserves a lot of credit for that. It’s great to be heading home with two road wins in two tough places to play.”

The Pirates, whose next two matches are at home Friday and Sunday, finished in 10th place in the AAC in 2016 and ‘15. Their league record last year was 5-15.

Following a .000 performance in the hitting department in Set 1, the Pirates responded with .387, .415 and .346 showings in the final three stanzas to end up at .281.

Seniors Natalie Montini, Ashton Mares and Lael Ceriani recorded 12 kills each. Defensively, Brandee Markwith had 15 digs and Toya Osuegbu racked up eight total blocks.
