The University of Wyoming volleyball team pushed No. 16 Colorado State to the limit Tuesday at the UniWyo Sports Complex.

The Cowgirls (7-7, 2-1 Mountain West) won the first and third sets, but the Rams (13-1, 3-0 MW) escaped with a 3-2 (20-25, 25-16, 27-29, 25-20, 15-10) victory.

“I thought the match got away from us in the fourth,” UW head coach Chad Callihan said. “That fourth set is critical and even though the match went five sets, they kind of got momentum back in the fourth and started getting into a rhythm offensively and that is probably where this match was determined.”
