Washington State Volleyball: Cougs Get First Pac-12 Win In Sweep of Colorado


The Washington State Cougar volleyball team has struggled mightily in the Pac-12 this season, but finally got into the win column on Halloween with a sweep of the Buffaloes. The Cougs passed and blocked extremely well all night behind great energy in Bohler Gym, while the Buffs simply looked lethargic and unattentive, even disinterested at times. Colorado is now 14-11 (4-9) on the season.

Ver’Leea Hardaway’s 15 kills and five blocks led the Washington State volleyball team (11-14, 1-12 Pac-12) to the 25-21, 25-9, 25-19 win, while Marcelina Glab tallied 11 kills, hit .562 on the night and had three blocks. Hardaway didn’t commit an error all night long, which was a major defining point. It was a satisfying night for the team, who got shut out in Boulder when they met Colorado back at the beginning of the month. Since then, the Cougs had lost 12 straight and still have 7 matches remaining.

Of course, the Pac-12 always boasts one of the strongest volleyball schedules in the country but the Cougs finally cracked through and hopefully can continue to build in their match at home against Utah tomorrow night at home. The lady Utes are 12-13 (3-9) so far in the conference, one of those wins coming in Salt Lake City against Washington State, 3-1.
