FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Kathryn Haynie tallied 18 kills as the Utah volleyball team fell to No. 21 Colorado State, 3-1, on Saturday, Oct. 20, in Fort Collins.
"I thought we played really well for three games, we just got stuck after giving up a run in game four and couldn't recover," head coach Beth Launiere said. "We did some good things in practice this week and carried that into the match. I am really pleased with how we played."
Although Utah (7-11, 4-5 MWC) was up by as many as three points early in the first game, Colorado State (14-4, 8-1 MWC) took control of the game with a six-point run to put the Rams up, 21-14, going on to win the first game, 30-21.
A close game two saw 15 ties, with the teams going point-for-point through much of the game. Each team had a four-point run late in the second game, tying the contest 27-27. Utah took a timeout before scoring three of the final four points, each point coming off kills from Haynie, to take game two, 30-28.
Down by as many as six points in the third game, 21-15, Utah crawled its way back to come within a point, 24-23, with the help of kills from Bartkowiak and Lori Baird, as well as two block assists each. Colorado State took a timeout and rallied with a 6-1 run to end the game with a 30-24 win.
In game four, the Rams took control early with a 10-point run, going on to win 30-18.
The Utes had won the first meeting of the season against Colorado State, 3-1.
