After two weeks of being on the road, the Boise State women’s volleyball team returned home this week facing the UNLV Lobos on Oct. 26 at Bronco Gym. The Broncos came out with a huge kill by senior middle blocker Laney Hayes to kick off a huge offensive night.
The team ended up adding another win to their conference record after beating the Lobos in just three games 25-20, 25-17, 25-14. Junior outside hitter Sabryn Roberts stood out tonight as a driving force at the net.
Towards the end of the match, head coach Shawn Garus even gave some younger players a chance to show fans the talent they have to look forward to in seasons to come by bringing out freshman outside hitters Kiley Lewis and Lizzie Wilson.
The Broncos overall record currently stands at 12-10, and conference record at 5-5 putting them at fourth in the Mountain West. With the end of the season rapidly approaching, the Broncos are gearing up for some bigger competition.
“This whole season we’ve been preparing. Our practices are held at a higher standard. I think we’ve been preparing for good teams all season, we just need to stay consistent with our game,” said senior Libero Maddi Osburn.
The Broncos will be on the road next weekend where they will face Wyoming and Colorado State, the top two teams in the Mountain West conference currently.
“The road trip next weekend will be really tough. These are two teams that beat us in Boise and we are looking forward to the rematch,” Garus said.
