Good morning, Coug fans! As summer approaches, anticipation surrounding fall sports builds to an all time high. Especially, for me, surrounding volleyball!
Last season, your Washington State Cougars went 11-5, with a conference record of 11-4. They only lost at home 3 times, holding to a 7-3 record, and carried an impressive 4-1 record on away games. Unfortunately, a lot of games were cancelled due to Covid, so we didn’t get to see our Cougs crush the Huskies for their Apple Cup, but don’t worry! We’ll get two chances this upcoming season.
For the schedule, linked here if you want to check it out, the games are no longer blocked up in terms of doubling up against one school in the same period of time. This upcoming season, the Cougs are able to bounce between teams, and are given the opportunity to replay them at a later date. For example, we’re playing UW on both Sunday, September 26th and ending the regular season with them on Saturday, November 27th. Mark your calendars, obviously.
The NCAA Tournament will take place December 3rd through December 18th, and I’m hopeful we get to see the Cougs take names there as well.
Last season, we were able to enter the NCAA Tournament, and were unfortunately knocked out by Western Kentucky in a close 2-3 loss. I’m incredibly excited and optimistic for this upcoming Volleyball season, so get hype!!
Additionally, WSU Volleyball’s Julianna Dalton has opted into the NIL bill, and has announced she’s ready to grow her personal branding! Go show her some love below.

Alright Coug fans, that’s it from me this morning. Stay hydrated, Go Cougs!
