Chico State Volleyball gains momentum and accomplished two consecutive wins by beating out the California State Monterey Bay Otters 3-1 on Saturday.

The Wildcats made it look easy in the first set beating the Otters 25-11. While the second set made Chico State feel the intensity, they still managed to finish off the set 25-20. The Otters made a comeback in the third set and beat Chico 21-25. With a strong finish Chico takes the last set with an impressive score of 25-14.

“I think that Monterey Bay brought the fire and spirit but our physicality ultimately shut them down,” Junior Brooke Fogel said.
