The Colorado State women’s volleyball team won a thrilling five set match Friday night over the Wyoming cowgirls 30-24, 27-30, 19-30, 30-22, 15-12 to improve to 9-3 on the year.
The Rams were led by seniors Casey Bauer, Tess Rogers and Dre Downs. Rogers had 14 kills, while Bauer had 13 kills on the night. Downs had a career-high night in blocks with 12.
Both teams committed a lot of errors which made the rhythm of the game not flow very well.
“It was a gut check for our team tonight,” head coach Tom Hilbert said. “I’m pleased with how we played, we composed ourselves well though.
Wyoming was led by outside hitter Kelsey Loop and middle blocker Rachel Smith, who had 14 and 13 kills respectively.
The Cowgirls drop to 5-7 on the season and 0-3 in the Mountain West.
The Rams will stay at home next weekend to take on BYU and Utah.
