The Kansas State Wildcats Women’s Volleyball Team isn’t one of the most impressive teams in the league. The Wildcats entered the match against the Texas Longhorns with a season record of 13-10. But what unfolded on the volleyball court between the two teams shocked everyone. K-State Volleyball tweeted about the victory of its team on its official X handle with the caption, “THESE SWEEPING CATS.”
