Cougs to play four Pac-12 matches in seven days beginning with mountain schools Friday and Sunday

PULLMAN, Wash. —  No. 9 Washington State volleyball (20-7, 10-6 Pac-12) will close the 2023 Pac-12 schedule with four matches over a seven-day span beginning Friday as they travel to Boulder, Colo., to play Colorado (14-13, 6-10 Pac-12) at 6 p.m. on Pac-12 Insider.  The Cougars will travel across the Rockies to Salt Lake City where they will play Utah (10-16, 5-11 Pac-12) on Sunday at 11 a.m. on Pac-12 Mountain.

Washington State is coming off of a reverse sweep over USC Sunday in Bohler Gym in which Iman Isanovic posted a season-high 24 kills while head coach Jen Greeny became just the second coach in program history to achieve three-consecutive 20-win seasons.  Friday’s match in Boulder will kick off a final stretch of four-matches within a one-week span as the Cougs return to Pullman to host Arizona State on Wednesday, Nov. 22, beginning at noon, followed by an Apple Cup road trip to Seattle to play the Huskies on Friday, Nov. 24, at 7 p.m.
