Utah State volleyball will close out its 2017 tournament slate this weekend, traveling to Flagstaff, Ariz., to compete in the Lumberjack Classic on the campus of Northern Arizona University. The Aggies will open with NAU on Friday at 1 p.m., and then face CSU Bakersfield at 5 p.m. USU will then play Arizona State on Saturday, beginning at 11 a.m.
We Meet Again
Utah State faced CSU Bakersfield for the first time in program history on Saturday, Aug. 26, posting a 3-1 victory over the Roadrunners. The Aggies will face the Roadrunners again in Flagstaff, Ariz., on Sept. 8. It will mark the first time that USU will have faced a non-conference opponent twice in a season since 2009.
Senior outside Lauren Anderson recorded the most attempts of any Mountain West player during the first weekend of the season with her career-high 69 attempt-effort against CSU Bakersfield on Aug. 26. Anderson finished the match with 22 kills, one shy of her career high.
Anderson entered the 2017 season with only two 20-plus kill performances in her career, but has already matched that total with 22 kills against CSU Bakersfield (8/26) and a second 22-kill performance against Pacific (9/1).
Junior libero Tasia Taylor has opened the year with seven straight matches with double-digit digs, including a career-high 25 against CSU Bakersfield on Aug. 26.
Taylor has recorded 20 or more digs in a match three times this season and has logged 15 or more digs in all but one contest this year.
Going the Distance
Taylor has appeared in every match and every set for the Aggies over the course of her two-year career at Utah State.
