After sweeping all 3 opponents in the Cougar Challenge last week, the Cougar volleyball team takes their show on the road this weekend to be a part of the Nevada Wolf Pack Invitational, in Reno. The Cougar women dominated last week, taking out Alabama State, Seattle U and Weber State in convincing fashion in front of the home crowd at Bohler Gym.
The Cougars are off to a pretty good start to the season, now sitting at 4-2 on the season. All 4 victories have been by way of sweep, as they also swept Montana to open the season before losing a match to Pacific and a heart breaker to Idaho.
Since we haven’t talked about the V-ball ladies yet, a little background from WSUcougars.com about our coaching staff and stars:
