The Chico State volleyball team extended their win streak to six in their game Oct. 14 against the Cal State Monterrey Bay Otters, to remain first in their conference.

The team has not had a six-game win streak during their conference since 2011. The win extends their season record to 14-4 and their conference record to 8-1, giving them a three-game lead against second-place Stanislaus State.

The Wildcats swept Cal State East Bay in their last match up but struggled in their 3-2 victory on the Otters home court. Chico State had difficulty because of the errors they committed in the game, with 28 compared to the Otters 19.

The ’Cats 28 errors are the most the team has committed in a single game this season and led to the Otters grabbing the first and fourth sets. Chico State outranked their opponent in mistakes in every set of the game.

Despite the Otters low volume of mistakes, they gave away the final set with an attack error. The Wildcats earned a 15-11 win in the set and a 3-2 victory in the game.
