COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The 17th-ranked Colorado State volleyball team improved to 14-2 overall (4-0 MWC) on Thursday night with a 3-0 victory over the Air Force Falcons (3-14, 0-4 MWC) at the East Gym of the Air Force Academy.
The Rams, playing without 2009 MWC Player of the Year Danielle Minch who was sidelined with an ankle injury, made short work of the Falcons, setting the tone early with a dominating 25-11 victory in Set 1. The Falcons battled hard and led late in the second set, 17-16, but the Rams pulled out the win to take a commanding 2-0 victory.
The Falcons did not let down, however, controlling the action for most of the third set and holding an 18-13 advantage. With the Rams trailing 23-21, sophomore MB Brieon Paige helped CSU score five consecutive points with two kills and a solo block before junior S Evan Sanders closed the match with a service ace to complete the Set 3 comeback, 25-23.
Senior OH Jacque Davisson tallied a match-high 10 kills for the Rams, while sophomore MB Megan Plourde added nine kills and four blocks (one solo). Paige led the team by hitting .667 (8-0-12) and led all players with six blocks (one solo).
Colorado State improved to 33-1 all-time against the Falcons.
The Rams continue MWC play on Saturday, heading to Las Vegas, Nev., for a matchup with the UNLV Rebels. The match is slated to start at 2 p.m. MT.
