The Kansas State volleyball team will travel to Morgantown, West Virginia to play in its third conference match on Wednesday.

The Wildcats are 10-3 overall after losing their last two matches. Texas ended K-State’s season-high eight-match winning streak last Wednesday. The Wildcats then traveled to take on the Oklahoma Sooners in Norman on Friday, and lost in three sets.

The Mountaineers (7-7) also lost their last two matches. Like K-State, they have failed to defeat a Big 12 opponent.

West Virginia’s loss to Texas Tech on Saturday came despite junior outside hitter Katelyn Evans totaling a season-high 21 kills.

Sophomore defensive specialist Alexa Hasting had a season-high 22 digs and freshman middle blocker Kristina Jordan led the team with four block assists. West Virginia ended the match hitting just .147 with five team blocks and 52 kills.

The Mountaineers are just five wins from claiming their 700th win in program history. Their all-time record is 695-730.

K-State and West Virginia are set to begin play at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Wildcat fans can watch the game through West Virginia Sports’ website or listen on KMAN radio.
