Huskies Progress Through Two Matches At Cal Poly

Mar 11, 2022

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – Opening up against one of the top beach teams in the country that already had ten matches under its belt was no easy task, but the Husky beach volleyball team hung tough and showed improvement into the day's second match at a tournament hosted by Cal Poly.
 
Washington had a 5-0 loss to sixth-ranked Loyola Marymount followed by a 4-1 loss to Arizona State, but UW took the No. 1 match in straight sets against the Sun Devils and took several more sets to the wire.
 
Chloe Loreen and Natalie Robinson earned the point at the top spot against Arizona State, defeating Flood/Sweeney by a 21-16, 21-11 count. Maeve Griffin and Ashley Shook also went to a third set at the No. 4 spot but came up short, 21-12, 20-22, 15-10, against ASU's Ames/Fitzgerald.
 
Also in their first match at the No. 2 spot, Paloma Bowman and Audra Wilmes dropped two very close sets to Kael/Pemberton of Arizona State, 21-18, 21-19. Kyra Petersen and Scarlett Dahl also had a close loss at No. 3, 21-15, 21-17, to Waters and Bordis.
 
In the day's first match against the Lions, the Dawgs battled but were unable to grab a set. Loreen and Robinson fell in a 21-15, 21-18 decision at No. 1 to Toth and Rice. Bowman and Wilmes were in the No. 3 spot in the first match, and fell 21-18, 21-13.
 
The Huskies will be back at it early Saturday with an 8 a.m. match against San Jose State, and then wrap up the weekend trip against a ranked Cal Poly squad at 10:30 a.m.
