The UT Tower will be drenched in burnt orange lighting Sunday evening, Nov. 30, in recognition of The University of Texas at Austin volleyball team’s Big 12 Championship.

“It feels great, because we’ve accomplished our first goal. Our first goal is always to win the Big 12,” said senior Haley Eckerman. “To know that we have done that every single year, it gives us more confidence.”

Texas won its fourth straight Big 12 Championship with a win over No. 24 Oklahoma on Saturday, Nov. 15. The Longhorns have won 21 conference titles in program history, including eight as a member of the Big 12 Conference.

“We never take that for granted, it’s an honor to win that,” said head coach Jerritt Elliott. “It’s a great conference and it’s very hard to do when you play a true double-round robin. It’s a tribute to our girls and how hard they’ve worked, what this program has done and we are really excited to be able to win that championship and add another year to our banner.”
