SAN JOSE, Calif. (11/7/2015) - Four Broncos reached double-figure kills to lead Boise State volleyball to its 10th sweep of the season at San Jose State 25-23, 25-13, 25-21 Saturday afternoon. Sierra Nobley led the Boise State foursome with a team-high 14 kills followed by Sabryn Roberts with 11, while Kaitlyn Oliver and Maddy O'Donnell added 10 each.

"I am pleased with the win today and the overall play of the team, but we still have things we need to work on," said head coach Shawn Garus. "San Jose State played well and battled hard, it is always good to get a road win. I thought Sarah (Baugh) was consistent again and did a good job distributing the ball. It was good to see a balanced attack with four Broncos in double-digit kills. We are really hard to defend when we have that many offensive options."

The Broncos earned their 10th victory in the last 11 contests by fighting off the Spartans in tight first and third sets in which Boise State had to rally late to win both. It was the fourth-consecutive victory for the Blue and Orange as it improved to 18-7 overall and 10-3 in Mountain West play to remain in sole possession of second place. The Broncos will now host four of their final five regular season matches beginning with San Diego State and Nevada next week.
