Volleyball: Squad to face Colorado State

The volleyball team will look to continue its winning ways Wednesday when it travels to Fort Collins, Colo. to face Colorado State in its conference opener.The squad won its eighth consecutive match when it downed Denver in the finals of the Molten/LaQuinta Invitational Saturday, hosted by TCU.

The Horned Frogs are 10-1 in the early stages of the season and prepare for a Colorado State team coming off of a tournament victory of its own at the Hilton Classic on Saturday in Fort Collins, Colo.

In the midst of the winning streak, the team is excited about its early success, said head coach Prentice Lewis.

“I am so proud to have a team that represents me and everything I stand for,” Lewis said.

The win matches the best start in school history and the second straight season the team has gone 10-1 out of the gate. Going on the road and achieving victory against a Colorado State team that is 5-0 at home will be tough, Lewis said.

“To them, everything is important and every point is important,” Lewis said. “It makes you feel good when see that in your team.
