BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – (Sept. 28) Seattle University volleyball hit the road for its first Western Athletic Conference matches away from home and dropped a 25-17, 25-22, 25-21 decision to CSU Bakersfield Thursday night in the Icardo Center.
The Redhawks (4-11, 0-2 WAC) could do little to slow CSUB’s hot offense as the home team hit .295 for the match, including .406 in the opening set.
The ‘Runners (9-8, 3-0 WAC) were led by Brianna Mariner’s 13 kills, while Sydney Haynes added 11.
But the ‘Runners would rally to tie the score 20-20, take their first lead at 22-22 and score the final three points of the set.
The final set would swing back and forth early courtesy big runs by each team. But with the score tied 17-17, CSUB would outscore the Redhawks 8-4.
Seattle U continues its two-match WAC road swing Saturday at Grand Canyon.
