ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Kylie McCulley had 22 kills and No. 12 Illinois rallied from two sets down to defeat No. 6 Michigan 21-25, 22-25, 25-20, 25-21, 15-11 on Saturday.

Laura DeBruler and Michelle Bartsch each added 13 kills for the Illini (10-3, 2-2 Big Ten), who rebounded from Friday's loss at Michigan State.

In women's cross-country:

Bizzarri second. Angela Bizzarri was second (17 minutes, 4 seconds) to lead No. 10 Illinois to a third-place finish at the Wisconsin Inter-Regional women's 5-kilometer cross-country race.

Kristin Sutherland was sixth for Illinois. The 12-team field included six ranked teams.

"We ran well today and had a lot of personal bests out there," coach Jeremy Rasmussen said. "The course was a lot tougher than I originally thought, so to have a lot of the girls get personal bests is definitely positive and encouraging."

In men's cross-country:

Mickow leads men. Colin Mickow was 24th overall in a personal-best 8K time of 24:39 as Illinois took sixth in the 13-team Wisconsin Inter-Regional.

The Illini's Jim Riddle (personal-best 24:55) was 38th.

In women's swimming:

Records fall. Seven Illini scrimmage records were set during the UI swimming and diving team's annual Orange and Blue scrimmage Friday night at the ARC pool as the Orange squad defeated the Blue 107-79.

CeCe Marizu broke her own scrimmage mark with a time of 58.95 seconds in the 100-yard backstroke. Other records were set by Amy Johnson (100 breaststroke, 1:06.57); Brittany McGowan (100 butterfly, 58.04); the 200 medley relay team of Marizu, Rachel Japp, McGowan, and Kimberly Kalenda (1:47.86); the 200 freestyle relay unit of Anna Johnson, Erin Lamb, Kalenda and McGowan (1:37.61); and diver Lauren Wismer in the one-meter (205.8 points) and three-meter (230.25).
