Weber State volleyball’s streak of 22 consecutive sets won came to a screeching halt in a pair of weekend road losses, the first defeats for the Wildcats in Big Sky play this season. The second decision pulls Portland State (16-7, 10-2 Big Sky) into a first-place tie with Weber State with four matches left in the regular season.
The Wildcats (15-7, 10-2) remain on the road to face Idaho State (6-18, 2-10) on Wednesday and Northern Colorado (17-6, 9-3) on Saturday.

With first place on the line, the first set late Saturday night was an all-timer and seemed to portend to a five-set slugfest.
But after Weber State survived the first marathon set 34-32, and the second set was tied 20-20, Portland State took over from there on the way to a 32-34, 25-21, 25-18, 25-11 victory.
Rylin Adams and Dani Nay each had 11 kills and Sam Schiess added 10. Ashlyn Power tallied 39 assists and Makayla Sorensen totaled 17 digs.
