The Cal Poly women’s volleyball team (7-7, 2-2) picked up its second straight Big West Conference win with a 25-22, 25-16, 22-25, 25-21 victory at Cal State Fullerton (6-11, 0-4) on Friday evening.

Behind the play of freshman outside hitter Raeann Greisen, Cal Poly dominated the match early on, winning the first two sets with a score of 25-22 and 25-16. Griesen recorded a match-leading 16 kills and had five key kills to help the Mustangs win the second set. 

The Titans rebounded to win set No. 3, but Cal Poly bounced back in set No. 4 once again behind five more kills Greisen. A 7-2 run helped the Mustangs recover from an early 2-0 deficit, and eventually win the set 25-21.

Other key contributors included freshman setter Taylor Nelson — who recorded 42 assists — and freshman middle blocker Savannah Niemen, who added seven blocks.

Nieman’s seven blocks were key in the Mustangs’ defense, which flourished and held Cal State Fullerton to a woeful .119 hitting percentage. 

Cal Poly looks to continue its winning streak with a key Big West matchup at UC Irvine on Saturday at 7 p.m.
