Pack Volleyball Falls to #20 Colorado State

Nevada Release

10/1/2015

Despite a .500 hitting percentage from junior Kathryn Groenweghe and 11.0 points from sophomore Madison Foley, the Nevada volleyball team could not top No. 20 Colorado State as the Rams topped the Pack, 3-0, in front of 354 at the Virginia Street Gym on Thursday evening.

The Pack (6-9, 1-2 MW) out-served its opponent for the eighth time this season, besting the Rams 6-4 in aces. Junior Madison Morell finished with a team-high nine kills, snapping a streak of 11-straight matches finishing with double-digit kills.

After falling in the first set, 25-16, two errors and a kill from Morell put the Pack out front early in the second, 3-0, before the Rams came back to tie the score, 7-7, in a back-and-forth set. The Pack later fell behind, 18-15, but would claim the next three points on a kill from Groenweghe and two aces from Foley. A bad set on the part of the Rams gave Nevada a 19-18 advantage before CSU rattled off five-straight points to take control of the frame and eventually win the set, 25-21.

Facing match-point in the third set, 25-14, the Pack stayed alive with consecutive kills from Morell and junior Lyndsey Anderson and a CSU error that made it 25-18. It wouldn’t be enough though as the Rams took the set, 25-18, and the match, 3-0.

The Pack will wrap up its first conference home matches of the season against No. 25 Wyoming on Saturday, Oct. 3, at 12 p.m.
