Well, we didn’t leave the WNMU Fieldhouse until 10:30 last night, so I didn’t update my last post. Instead, you get this one!
In the third game of the night, No. 4 Mesa State College defeated No. 5 Regis University in five sets. This was an incredibly close match, because both teams poured their hearts into every point. There were some long rallies, great hitting on both sides of the net, and great defense as well.
Top-seeded Western New Mexico University was able to topple No. 8 CSU-Pueblo in four sets. I was a bit apprehensive before this game, because Pueblo had beat Western here earlier in the season. And while the ThunderWolves fought hard, the ‘Stangs were able to pull it out.
So, tonight’s semi-final schedule is:
5:30 p.m. No. 3 Metro State vs. No. 2 Nebraska-Kearney
8:00 p.m. No. 4 Mesa State vs. No. 1 Western New Mexico
