ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - The last time the UAA and Western Washington's volleyball teams met this season, it was the Western Washington Vikings who came away victorious, winning three sets to none.
However, the teams are different now. It's later in the season. And according to UAA head coach Chris Green, they've gotten stronger offensively as a team.
"We played great the first two sets," Green said about the last time these two teams met. "But we dropped off offensively the last two and that's where they got us."
UAA is 9-3 on the season, second in the GNAC standings, right behind the Vikings, who are riding a 17-game win streak. The Seawolves remember what the loss earlier felt like and are determined not to replicate that this go-around.
"After losing that match, we were all pretty upset about it," senior Tara Melton said. So, going into this week, knowing that that's our rival, we've all been very excited to go to practice. We've had better practices then we've had in the past few weeks."
UAA will face Western Washington on Thursday at the Alaska Airlines Center at 7 p.m.
