Broncos Sweep Arizona State
April 15, 2018


HONOLULU, Hawaii - For the second time in two days Boise State’s beach volleyball team knocked off the Pacific-12 Conference’s Arizona State Sun Devils by a 3-2 score to complete the weekend sweep of ASU. Boise State was led by the pairs of Jaymee-Lee Bulda and Jensen Allen, Kiley Lewis and Brindl Langley, and Sabryn Roberts and Janell Walley who all recorded wins against the Sun Devils on Sunday.

Boise State was scheduled to play two matches on Sunday with the second being against third-ranked Hawai’i. That contest was being televised in Hawaii and was schedule to be completed after midnight (Mountain). A match recap will be posted on Monday for that contest.

“I was very happy with our play today against Arizona State,” said coach Shawn Garus. “We have struggled against ASU the past couple years and it’s great to see the Broncos pick up a pair of wins over the Sun Devils. I thought Sabryn (Roberts) and Janell (Walley) came through for us winning in three at No. 1 pair, that was big. That was a nice win for Sabryn and Janell and clinched another big victory for the team.”

Once again the Broncos’ No. 4, 2 and 1 pairs, respectively, brought home the victory for the blue and orange against Arizona State with the win being clinched by Roberts and Walley on court one.

The match began with the teams splitting No. 4 and 5 pairs. After ASU took the early lead with a win on court five, Boise State’s Bulda and Allen evened it up when they downed Kate Baldwin and Samantha Plaster in straight sets 21-16, 21-14.

Lewis and Langley tied the match up at 2-2 when they defeated the Sun Devils’ duo of Natalie Braun and Kara Woodard 22-20, 21-14 at No. 2 pair.

The decisive victory came on court one where the Broncos’ Roberts and Walley held off ASU’s Kwyn Johnson and Mia Rivera. The Boise State tandem took set one, then fell in the second as the match went to a third period. Roberts and Walley pulled out to a early lead and never let up as they claimed a 21-17, 18-21, 15-8 win to clinch the team victory.
