Eagles Earn First Conference Victory of the Season over Weber State
Sept. 30, 2006
Both the Eastern Washington University women's volleyball team (8-7, 1-5) and the Weber State University Wildcats (3-17, 0-6) were winless in conference play going into this match, so one of them had to come out on top. It was the Eagles who prevailed with a 3-0 victory and game scores of 30-27, 30-26, 30-20 Saturday (Sept. 30) in Ogden, Utah.
Eastern outhit the Wildcats in the match .288 to .124, which is a big improvement to the .054 the Eagles hit in the loss to Sacramento State on Thursday (Sept. 28). The Eagles also recorded seven blocks to just four by Weber State.
With this win, Eastern snapped a six-match losing streak that started on Sept. 13 against Gonzaga.
Weber State was led by Leah Burmeister who had a double-double with 11 kills and 14 digs.
The Eagles will try to make it two in a row as they play Thursday (Oct. 5) at 6 p.m. at Montana State and then again Saturday (Oct. 7) also at 6 p.m. at Montana. Eastern will play at home next on October 11 against Idaho in a non-conference match at Reese Court in Cheney, Wash. That match will be played at 7:05 p.m.
