Volleyball Sweeps Idaho Saturday Night
Oct. 26, 2002
LOGAN, Utah - Led by Erin Cartwright and Ingrid Roth, Utah State's volleyball team swept Idaho Saturday by final scores of 30-27, 30-19, 30-25. With the win, USU improved to 10-10 on the season and 4-6 in the Big West Conference, while Idaho fell to 7-12 overall and 4-6 in league play.
"We were able to take them out of their offensive flow," said head coach Burt Fuller. "We had great performances by our middle blockers in Ingrid Roth and Erin Cartwright. It was a good team effort and we had a good week of practice that carried over to tonight."
Roth, a freshman, hit a blistering .714 on a career high 11 kills. Roth's 11 kills marked the second time she has had a double-digit kills this season, as the first was Oct. 19 against Cal State Northridge (10).
