No. 18-ranked St. Thomas Volleyball scored a 3-0 victory over host Hamline Wednesday night in St. Paul to secure at least a share of the MIAC championship and take the No. 1 playoff seed. The Toms won 25-21, 25-15, 25-17.

The team title came on Thanh Pham's 500th match in 15 seasons as head coach at St. Thomas (396-104 record).

The Toms (23-5 overall, 9-1 MIAC), who won their fourth match in a row, finish the regular season Saturday afternoon at St. Catherine and can win the title outright with a victory.

St. Thomas fell behind the Pipers in the third set 9-5 and still trailed 13-12 before using a 11-2 scoring run to take control.
