FOLSOM, Calif. -- Sacramento State swept a pair of home matches, defeating both Boise State (4-1) and Foothill College (5-0) on Wednesday afternoon at Livermore Community Park.
Today marked the final home games of the season for Sacramento State (4-13), as the Hornets have just two contests remaining in the regular season before competing in the Big West Conference Tournament in Honolulu on April 27-29.
Sacramento State improved its winning streak to three straight, and will conclude the regular season this Saturday in Stockton when the team faces both San Jose State (12 p.m.) and Pacific (3 p.m.).
Today, four Sacramento State doubles teams went a perfect 2-0, including Lana Brown/Kennedy Kurtz (No. 2), Hannah Meadows/Ashtin Olin (No. 3), Macey Hayden/Skyler Takeda (No. 4) and Brigitte Murdock/Paige Swinney (No. 5). The Hornets' No. 1 team of Sarah Davis and Mikaela Nocetti posted a 1-1 record.
The 4-1 victory against Boise State was closer than the final score indicated as three of the four Hornet wins came in three sets, including Brown/Kurtz posting a 24-22 third set win, and Hayden/Takeda winning, 21-19, in their third set.
Sacramento State had little trouble with Foothill College as all five matches were decided in straight sets.
