Women’s volleyball dig out eighth straight

Nobody can seem to slay the Seawolves, as they have been dominate in their past eight-straight victories. 

Sonoma State’s women’s volleyball team cruised over Humboldt State this weekend to make a 3-0 win (25-18, 25-16, 25-16). 

The Seawolves did not hold back anything back with the win over Humboldt state on Saturday night at the Wolves Den.

The overpowering Seawolves have been anything but shy; their dominating forces are why they are currently in first place in the CCAA. 

The Seawolves will look to keep this winning streak alive while playing in their conference.

As soon as the Seawolves stepped on the court, they were in kill-mode. 

Leading the pack was sophomore Kelsey McIntire, with nine kills for the Seawolves while hitting 500. Not far behind, were junior Lexi Reddick with eight kills, and senior Caylie Seitz, who needs 18 kills to break the all-time kills record in school history. Seitz managed to record five in the victory. Junior Rachel Andrews also slammed six kills and made two solo blocks.

Leading the way for the defensive backbone of the Seawolves, was senior Kaitlyn Connolly, who received the California Collegiate Player of the Week honors this last week. 

There has not been a player who has received the award at Sonoma State since 2011. 

Connolly leads the team and ranks seventh in the CCAA in digs per set with a 4.39.  

She also holds a team-best of 479 digs, the seventh-most in program history.

Connolly added 16 more digs against Humboldt State to keep her on pace to move up on the all-time leader boards. 

Along with being an outstanding volleyball player, Connolly is also a star student, making the CCAA All-Academic Team last season. 

The Seawolves will try to keep the eight-game winning streak alive on Friday against the Pioneers at Cal State East Bay. They will then return back home on Oct. 21 to defend their court against Cal State L.A.
