Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a fan of a winning team? Well look no further! You already are a fan of a winning team and you didn't even know it!

Everyone knows what happened Saturday and nobody is happy with it. So I decided to give you something to make your Tuesday just a little bit better. A WINNING TEAM!

I present to you your 2015 Washington State Volleyball and soccer team.

The women's soccer team is 4-0 and has outscored opponents 9-3 over that stretch. Last week the Cougar women defeated Montana in a 1-0 match in overtime. They take on Oklahoma State on Friday at 7 pm in Pullman.

The Volleyball team lost their first match to Radford (VA)  but since then has gone on a tear as they have defeated the last 5 opponents they have faced and not dropped a set. After sweeping at the Moscow Invitational the Cougars will play their first games in Pullman this weekend as they take on Morehead State, Ball State, and Utah Valley at Bohler Gym for the Cougar Challenge. The Cougars have a big chance to go 8-1 heading into the Texas Tech Lone Star Showdown September 18-19, their last matches before starting conference play.

Now only if we could get the Football team to duplicate their success...
