CSU Volleyball meet Air Force Falcons in Colorado Springs

Haleigh Hamblin

This season causes Mountain West opponents to think twice when heading into Falcon territory.

At (3-10) the Air Force Academy has made its mark. With a season high of 26 blocks against the University of Utah Valley on Sept. 26, the team stands strong with several leading players.

The Falcon offense will use its versatility to its advantage against Colorado State on Thursday. Raquel Rosas acquired eight assisted blocks, Hillary Keltner had two solo and four assisted and Ayesha Hein also had two solo and three assisted blocks.

“Air Force is better than they’ve ever been, so you gotta convince your team of that,” CSU head coach Tom Hilbert said

Thursday is the first conference match up between the Rams and Falcons. CSU looks to continue their perfect record to 11-0 as Air Force looks for their first win of their home stand. The game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at Clune Arena in Colorado Springs.
