Washington Athletics Dots
- UW Volleyball got a close 5 set win at Cal Poly last night to extend their win streak to 8 matches. The Dawgs got off to a terrible start and collapsed at the end of set 4 but managed to rally in the 5th and final set in part due to the stellar play of freshman Kiersty Barton who put up historic numbers.
- Washington finishes out non-conference play this weekend with a game this afternoon at 3p against Pepperdine and tomorrow at 10:30a versus Saint Mary’s. Neither of those games are expected to be live streamed.
