The Chico State women’s volleyball team has alternated winning and losing their past eight matches. After a loss Friday night at the hands of Cal State L.A., the Wildcats kept the pattern going for a ninth match by bouncing back with a victory. The Wildcats defeated the Cal State Dominguez Hills Toros in straight sets 25-15, 25-12,and 25-19.

The Wildcats won the first two sets handily by scores of 10 and eight respectively, taking less than 50 minutes to do so.

Determined not to be swept on their senior night, the Toros made the third set competitive before faltering at the end as the ‘Cats pulled away to win by six.

Chico State bumps up their record to 10-10 in California Collegiate Athletic Association play while Dominguez Hills falls to 2-18.

Freshman Olivia Mediano led the Wildcats with 15 kills on the night. Senior Kristyn Casalino had 13 kills on an outstanding .867 hitting percentage. Setter Torey Thompson handed out 41 assists and added eight digs. Senior libero Emily Duran had a match high 14 digs.

The Wildcats converted on their kill attempts at a much higher rate than the Toros, hitting .418 compared to the home team’s .143.

The Wildcats wrap up the regular season with two home matches. The ‘Cats return to Acker Gym to host Sonoma State on Friday Nov. 14, followed by senior night on Saturday Nov. 15 versus San Francisco State.
