FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Wearing orange jerseys in honor of its past, No. 7 Colorado State continued its proud winning tradition with a 3-0 victory against San Diego State Saturday night in front of 4,370 fans at Moby Arena (25-22, 25-21, 25-16). This marked 11 consecutive wins for the Rams and impoves their mark to 16-1, 4-0 MW.
“I thought we played great,” head coach Tom Hilbert said. “I was upset with a few individual plays, especially in set two and in crunch time, but I thought we were good, and defensively we played well."
Senior middle blocker Kelsey Snider paced the Rams’ offense with a team-most 13 kills on .591 hitting. Teammates Jasmine Hanna (12; .417) and Adrianna Culbert (10; .350) were also in double figures for kills, while Culbert (10) and junior libero Jaime Colaizzi (14) were in double digits for digs. Senior setter Deedra Foss had 42 assists and three blocks, while sophomore middle blocker Acacia Andrews had a team-most four stuffs.
“We had some people step up really big for us,” Hilbert said. “I think when you have a setter as good as Deedra, it creates a lot of separation and good things happen. Dri hit the ball really well today. She got blocked early, and I was scared that would affect her, but it didn’t. She came through and hit .350."
