TURLOCK -- Chico State may never want to swap dates with Cal State Stanislaus again.
The Warriors upset the Wildcats with a sweep 25-23, 25-21, 25-18 to hand Chico State its third consecutive loss.
With the Wildcats' gym floor unavailable for a scheduled California Collegiate Athletic Association volleyball game with Stanislaus on Wednesday, the Warriors agreed to host.
Stanislaus (5-10, 2-5 CCAA) led 20-9 in the third set. Andrea Fett led the way with 12 kills on 27 swings with just three errors (.333 attacking percentage).
Three Warriors Melissa Bishop (.357), Janay Bankston (.304) and Jennifer Marsh (.350) each had seven kills for the team offensively.
"We had so much energy and team chemistry, it's like a whole new Stanislaus team," Bishop said. As a team, Stanislaus had a .337 percentage with 41 kills on 104 attempts with just six errors.
While the Warriors hit every shot in, Chico State (10-4, 4-3 CCAA) was hitting its shots long, short, wide or in the net. The Wildcats ended up with 25 attacking errors. Chico (10-4, 4-3 CCAA) also had five service errors, four receiving errors and two blocking errors.
Up front, Stanislaus had nine team blocks with a solo and 16 assists Bishop had five, Bankston four (assisted) and Nicole Kincaide stuffed four total. While no one had double digits in digs, they tallied 42 Fett and Ashley Pittman each had nine. Stanislaus will play at Chico State on Nov. 7. The Warriors travel to Cal State East Bay and Cal State Monterey Bay this weekend.
