The Colorado State University volleyball team (10-6, 4-2 MWC) improved its win streak to five matches, Friday evening, when the Rams defeated the Air Force Falcons (1-13, 0-6 MWC) in Colorado Springs. The Rams swept the Falcons 30-14, 30-20, 30-16.
In game one, the Rams jumped out to an early 6-0 lead and never looked back en route to a 30-14 victory. Colorado State dominated the game, hitting .484 while holding the Falcons to .000 hitting as a team. Junior Amanda Fahnestock paced the Rams in the opener with five kills and three block assists.
The Falcons did not quit, taking a quick 6-4 lead in game two. However, the Rams quickly got back on track regaining the lead for good at 9-8. The Rams were unable to immediately shake the Falcons, and the two teams battled to a 20-18 score before the Rams began to pull away, winning four of the next six points and eventually taking game two, 30-20. Fahnestock once again led the Rams with four kills on four swings in game two.
In game three, the Rams returned to form, winning the match with a 30-16 victory. Barnes and Fahnestock once again led the way for the Rams with three kills each in the final game. Junior Jenni Hirneisen added a career-high three kills of her own to help seal the Rams victory.
For the contest, the Rams hit .386 while holding Air Force to a .079 hitting percentage. The Rams also out blocked the Falcons 5-1 and recorded fiver service aces, compared with two for Air Force. Fahnestock led the Rams with 12 kills, hitting at a .522 clip for the match.
Freshman Katelin Batten also set the school record for consecutive matches in double-figures for digs, with 14 against the Falcons. It marked the 14th straight time that Batten has recorded double-figure digs, and moved her ahead of Carrie Appleman who accomplished the feat 13 times in 1992.
Up next, the Rams play host to UNLV and San Diego State on Oct. 13 and 14, respectively.
