Hogs Set for Invitational Action in Fort Collins – Razorbacks Arkansas

Coming off their highest-ranked win in 15 years in opening weekend, the Arkansas volleyball squad is in for another set of strong opponents in week two.
Arkansas takes on Colorado State, Alabama State and Florida Gulf Coast Thursday-Saturday in Fort Collins, respectively. It’s the first time in 11 years that the Razorbacks and Rams have met and the first in Fort Collins since 2008. The weekend will mark the first-ever contests that the Hogs have had with Alabama State and FGCU.
Thursday’s match against host Colorado State is set for 8 p.m. CT and will be streaming live via Colorado’s State’s website. Friday’s tilt with Alabama State is at 5:30 p.m. and Saturday’s finale with FGCU is set for 12 p.m. Neither Friday or Saturday’s match will be streamed, but Colorado State will provide live stats throughout the tournament.
Last Time Out
Arkansas hosted then-No. 8 Washington to open the 2022 slate and came away with its first top-10 win since 2015 and highest-ranked win since 2007. The Hogs defeated the Huskies 3-1 on Friday, and Washington came back to take the weekend finale 3-1 for a series split.
Junior outside hitter Taylor Head led the offense all weekend with 32 total kills and 25 digs, with double-doubles in both matches. Graduate Gracie Ryan and sophomore Hannah Hogue split duties at the setter position, and Hogue set a new career high in assists in Friday’s match with 31. Sophomore libero Courtney Jackson led the defense with 33 digs on the weekend and a career-high five service aces on Saturday, which included four in the first set alone.
In this week’s AVCA Coaches’ Poll, Arkansas received 58 votes. The last time the Hogs were in the rankings was the 2015 season, after they defeated No. 9 Florida in five sets.
