Dixie State women’s volleyball team collected its third-straight Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference victory with a 3-1 result over Western State Colorado in the Trailblazers’ first RMAC home match Friday night inside the DSU SAC.
The Trailblazers (8-2, 3-0 RMAC) quickly rolled to a 2-0 match lead on the strength of a 25-15 win in set one, followed by a 25-16 triumph in set two. DSU used a decisive 10-2 run to break a 9-9 tie to pull away in the first set and scored the final seven points of the second frame to go up two sets.
Western State (1-11, 0-4 RMAC) led for most of the third stanza, thanks in part to a 12-5 spurt that turned a 13-13 deadlock into a 25-18 win to cut the deficit to 2-1. However, the Trailblazers bounced back with a dominant fourth frame as they hit .478 with 13 kills en route to a 25-8 set win to clinch the match.Comment on this story
