WSU Athletic Communications

After reaching the second round of the 2017 NCAA Volleyball tournament for the second consecutive year, Washington State head coach Jen Greeny will look to repeat and improve the success of her team in the upcoming season. Washington State released the 2018 volleyball schedule on Monday and included was the Pac-12 television schedule for the Cougars.

Led by senior Taylor Mims, the Cougars will have 12 televised games this season, including games against top-25 conference opponents Washington, USC, Utah, UCLA, Stanford, Colorado, and Oregon. The Cougars finished last season ranked 38th behind eight conference opponents who were scattered among the top 34.

Things will start off with quality opponents as their first two games will come against teams that made the NCAA tournament. The season opener on Saturday August 25th in Raleigh, North Carolina will be against Virginia Commonwealth and they will follow that up against North Carolina State the next day. The Following week the Cougars will head to Cedar Falls Iowa to take on Northern Iowa before returning home for the Cougar Challenge Tournament on September 7th and 8th.

They will get the opportunity to face another quality team during the Cougar Challenge when they host another NCAA tournament team in Stony Brook following matches against McNeese State and Illinois State.

Things wont slow down for them as they wrap up their non conference schedule September 14th and 15th against another tournament team in Western Kentucky. They will also take on Northern Illinois and East Tennessee State that weekend in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The Cougars will start Pac-12 play in a gauntlet as they will have two away games and two home games against four different teams in the current top-25. Their first conference game, which also happens to be their first of three consecutive televised games will come in Seattle on September 20th against the Huskies before they travel south to Eugene to take on the Ducks. They will then return home for a Friday (9/28) and Sunday (9/30) match against Utah and Colorado.

The Cougars will hit the road for four matches before alternating two home and two away games for a month until November 16th when they finish out the season with four home games capped with hosting Washington November 29th, the day after the 2018 Apple Cup in Pullman.
