FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State’s volleyball team is back in familiar territory following a weekend sweep against Mountain West conference foes Boise State and Air Force.
Having swept those opponents—and three in a row and six of the team’s past seven matches—the Rams are perched atop the MW standings alongside UNLV.
But the road to another conference title and the program’s 18th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance becomes challenging, beginning this week with two of three straight road matches. CSU, 13-6 overall and 6-2 in the conference, faces San Diego State Thursday night and two nights later the Rams are in Reno to face the University of Nevada. Both matches begin at 8 p.m. MT, and Thursday’s match will be available free via an online stream.
Beginning the second half of conference play, Colorado State finishes the three-game road stretch by playing at Wyoming Nov. 2 in the annual Border War match, a night prior to the meeting of the two schools’ respective football teams.
Senior Megan Plourde led the Rams last week, moving into second on the school’s list for most career blocks, behind former All-American Angela Knopf.
Colorado State returns to Moby Arena for crucial conference matches with conference co-leader UNLV (Nov. 8) and Fresno State (Nov. 10) as the season winds toward postseason play.
