LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Rams volleyball program improved its ranking once again this week, moving to No. 16 in the Division I Coaches top 25 poll released Monday afternoon by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA).
The improvement comes after a pair of three-set road wins last week against Air Force and UNLV.
Colorado State first traveled south Thursday to defeat the Falcons, without 2009 MWC Player of the Year Danielle Minch, sidelined with an ankle injury.
The Rams then traveled to Las Vegas, Nev., to face to Rebels on Saturday, taking another three-set road victory. Outside hitter Dana Cranston tied for match-high honors with Megan Plourde, tallying 10 kills, which was a career best for Cranston.
CSU is back at home this week, facing the TCU Horned Frogs on Thursday at 7:30 p.m., and taking on the New Mexico Lobos on Saturday at 7 p.m. Thursday's match marks the unveiling of CSU's new $1 million video board system at Moby Arena and tickets have been reduced to $2 for the occasion.
Saturday's match is a "Hike and Spike" special and fans will received admission for just $3 with a ticket stub from that afternoon's homecoming football game vs. UNLV.
