A Test Post: Boise State Volleyball Falls Twice on Saturday

STANFORD, Calif. – Boise State beach volleyball lost a pair of matches on
Saturday falling to San Jose State and No. 14 Stanford by 5-0 scores.

The Broncos were led by their No. 1 pair Sabryn Roberts and Janell Walley
who battled hard on Saturday falling to San Jose State’s Nandyala Gama and
Lyndi Scholl in two tight sets 21-18, 21-19.

Kenna Hanses and Kylee Johnson played SJSU’s Thaliana Grajeda and Jamie
Hirai close going 21-16, 21-17 at No. 4 pair. Meanwhile, Drew Hannemann and
Cassedi Simon won their exhibition match over the Spartans’ Breann Robinson
and Ryann Thomison in three sets 14-21, 22-20, 19-17.

Stanford’s experience and size gave the young Broncos everything they could
handle as the 14th-ranked Cardinal rolled to a 5-0 victory over Boise State
in the final match of the day. Walley and Roberts recorded the best result
going down on court one against the 6-foot-6 Kathryn Plummer and her
partner Sunny Villapando  21-13, 21-14.

Jensen Allen and Kiley Lewis played No. 3 pair against Stanford falling to
the 6-foot-4 Courtney Bowen and Kate Formico in two sets 21-18, 21-5.

The Broncos will be back in action next the weekend of March 29-30 when
they travel to Seattle, Wash., to face the Washington Huskies and Portland
Pilots.
