Weber State women’s volleyball picked up a big four-set win over Sacramento State on Thursday night.
Senior Andrea Hale broke into the 1,000 kill club early in the second set, becoming the 12th Wildcat in school history to hit the milestone.
“I’m happy with the way we competed,” said head coach Jeremiah Larsen. “We found some consistency that has been missing. Beating a program with the caliber of Sac State is a huge accomplishment for our program and where we’re trying to go.”
The first set came down to the wire. Weber State had a four-point lead at one point, but Sac State tied everything up at 23-23. Rylin Roberts had a kill to bring it up to match point, and then the Hornets recorded an attack error and WSU claimed the first set, 25-23.
In the second game, things were all tied up at 14-14, and then Weber State had an 8-1 run that propelled it to the 25-18 win.
In game three, Sac State jumped out to a 14-7 lead. The Wildcats couldn’t ever dig themselves out of that hole and fell 25-18 in the third.Comment on this story
