SAN DIEGO, Calif. – The Colorado State volleyball team ran its winning streak to nine matches, and improved to 13-3 overall and 5-0 in the Mountain West Conference, with a 3-1 victory at San Diego State (6-10, 1-5 MWC) on Thursday night. 

After dropping the opening set, 25-20, the team’s first set lost vs. an MWC opponent this season, the Rams stormed back to win the next three sets by scores of 25-21, 25-23 and 25-19, to pick up the victory. 

Three Rams posted double-digits kills in the match, led by junior outside hitter Danielle Minch, who recorded 17.

But it was freshman Megan Plourde who came up the biggest for the Rams, notching 11 kills, including three in the deciding set, on .688 hitting (11-0-16) to carry CSU to victory.  Plourde also posted a match-high six blocks (one solo) for the Rams, who outblocked the Aztecs by a margin of 10-7.

“Megan has played at a very high level for most of the season, and tonight she showed that again,” said Head Coach Tom Hilbert.  “She is one of those players that, for whatever reason, flies under the radar, but she can make a difference in any match.”

Junior Jacque Davisson recorded her fourth double-double of the season, finishing with 10 kills and 10 digs for CSU. 

Sophomore opposite hitter Katelyn Steffan chipped in with nine kills, while senior middle blocker Tessa Nelson added eight kills on .412 hitting, to go along with four blocks.  Sophomore setter Evan Sanders also recorded four blocks and notched 46 assists in the contest.  Senior libero Katelin Batten posted a team-best 11 digs. 



Overall, the Rams hit an impressive .331 in the match, while holding the Aztecs to just .243. 

Colorado State continues action this weekend, traveling to Colorado Springs on Saturday for a meeting with the Air Force Falcons (8-10, 0-6 MWC).  The match is slated to begin a 12 p.m. from Clune Arena.
