COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The No. 22 University of Utah women's volleyball team won its fourth straight match tonight when it swept Air Force 30-27, 30-25, 30-22. The Utes hit for .362 on the match and held the Falcons to .182. However, Utah was out-blocked 9-5. With the win, the Utes improve to 18-6 overall and 7-3 in the Mountain West Conference.
"We won on the road!" Head Coach Beth Launiere said. "We played very steady and with confidence - much like we've been playing at home lately. I was very pleased with our effort."
Junior captain Kim Turner led Utah with 16 kills on a .565 hitting percentage. "Kim has just been tearing it up lately," Launiere said.
