Weber State volleyball streak halted in 2 losses, tied for 1st in Big Sky

By Brett Hein - | Oct 31, 2021

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.

After seven consecutive sweep wins, the Wildcats were dispatched 25-16, 25-21, 25-16 in a sweep loss as Sacramento State hit a blistering .400 for the match.

Rylin Adams totaled 10 kills for WSU. Sam Schiess added six kills and four blocks.

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.
