MADISON, Wis. — Look out above — the Baylor volleyball team figures to keep climbing in the polls.

The 17th-ranked Bears snatched the highest-ranked road win in school history, taking down No. 4 Wisconsin, 21-25, 25-22, 27-25, 25-17, on Friday night at the HotelRed Invitational.

Yossiana Pressley crunched 31 kills and continued to hit at an All-American level, with a .270 hitting percentage. Shelly Stafford had eight kills with no attacking errors, and moved into the 1,000-kill club for her stellar career.

Three different players tallied double-digit digs for Baylor (4-0), which deftly climbed out of the one-set hole. Pressley and Tara Wulf had 16 digs apiece, while Hannah Lockin had 11 to go with her 50 assists.

The Badgers (2-2) outblocked Baylor, 13-9, in the match, but the Bears outhit Wisconsin in each of the final three sets.
