Washington Volleyball's strong run in the NCAA tournament helped move the Huskies up to a season-high No. 6 ranking in the final AVCA coaches poll, announced today.
The No. 8 seed Washington women's volleyball team will face off with No. 9 Kentucky in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Women's Volleyball Tournament.
In one of the most epic matches seen in Alaska Airlines Arena in years, the 13th-ranked Husky volleyball team survived seven match points and defeated 15th-ranked Utah on its second match point, pulling out a wild 21-19 fifth set victory on a Kara Bajema stuff block that sent the 2,665 fans home happy.
Washington volleyball on Wednesday received a commitment from one of the top senior outside hitters in the nation, as Madi Endsley committed to the Huskies.
Three weeks remain in the regular season and the conference race is at full speed. Every match for the 13th-ranked Huskies is a big one and this week is no exception.
Husky outsides Kara Bajema and Samantha Drechsel powered the Huskies to a victory over Oregon State today, combining for 37 of Washington's 60 total kills in a 25-16, 22-25, 25-13, 25-23 victory
