The Utah Utes’ women’s volleyball team had an impressive October – going 5-3 in the toughest conference in the country, the Pac-12, including wins over #7 Stanford, #13 Washington State, and #24 USC. Each of their three losses was to teams ranked in the top 25, including a narrow 5-set loss to #23 Oregon.
Adora Anae, VolleyMob’s last National Player of the Week for October, averaged a double-double for the month, with more than 22 kills and 14 digs per game across the Utes’ 8 games.
The Utes have carried their success into November so far, with a 3-0 sweep on Friday against Cal, but they’ll put that on the line on Saturday with a rematch against now-#13 Stanford at home. The Utes will expect to face at least 4 more ranked teams (possibly more) in the next month as they battle for seeding in the NCAA tournament (in which they’ve likely already sealed their spot).
Below, see the Utes’ October highlight video of the best moments and plays from the month.
