FORT WORTH, Texas – The Colorado State volleyball team got back on track Saturday, earning a road sweep of the TCU Horned Frogs – 25-18, 25-21, 25-16 – at TCU’s University Rec Center on Saturday afternoon. 

Two days after having their 13-match win streak haulted at New Mexico, the Rams (23-3, 12-1 MWC) bounced back behind stellar performances from senior outside hitters Danielle Minch and Jacque Davisson, who each tallied double-digits in kills while hitting better than .400 in the match. 

Minch tallied a match-high 16 kills on .419 hitting, and added three service aces and a pair of blocks.  Davisson notched a double-double with 11 kills on .429 hitting and a match-high 10 digs. 

As a team, the Rams hit the ball well against the Frogs, combining for a team hitting percentage of .356 (49-12-104).  And CSU’s defense proved too strong for TCU, as the Rams held the Frogs to just .167 hitting as a squad (31-15-96).  The Rams outblocked the Frogs, 9.0-6.0. 

Junior setter Evan Sanders kept the Rams on point, tallying 41 assists and spreading the ball around.  In addition to the double-digit-kills games by Minch and Davisson, three other Rams – Megan Plourde (7), Brieon Paige (5) and Katelyn Steffan (5) - recorded at least five kills in the contest.

Irene Hester tallied a team-leading 11 kills and eight assists for the Horned Frogs, while Christy Hudson led the squad with 16 assists.  Kristen Hester was the top blocker for the Frogs, tallying four. 


 

 

The win, coupled with a Utah loss at UNLV on Saturday afternoon, inches the Rams closer to a share of the Mountain West Conference title, eliminating the Utes from contention.  CSU now leads second-place New Mexico by two matches with three left to play for each squad. 

A Rams’ win in their next outing, at rival Wyoming on Thursday, would clinch a share of the league championship for Colorado State.
