The Snow College volleyball team is nearing the end of their first season under new head coach Cinthia Angus, while competing with some of the toughest teams in the nation to find success.

Angus is from Sao Paulo, Brazil, but played collegiate volleyball in Utah, starting at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) and later moving on to the University of Utah. While at SLCC, Angus played as an outside hitter and was a 2007 second-team All-American and a first-team SWAC All-Region player. Angus was part of a Utah team that won the Mountain West Conference title in 2008 and made a deep run in the national tournament as they reached the Sweet 16.

The Badgers opened up the season on the road and finished the beginning away matches with a record of 7-11. Snow was then able to play two matches in Ephraim as they hosted SLCC on Oct. 1 and the College of Southern Idaho on Oct. 3, two teams that are consistently ranked in the top ten nationally. The Badgers dropped both matches in straight-sets as their record dropped to 7-13.

The Badgers then won three out of their next four games to push their record to 10-14. Snow’s next game will be Oct. 23 on the road against SLCC. The final home game will be Oct. 27 against the College of Southern Nevada.

Tyler Pierce is the Head Sports Editor for the Snowdrift and is attending Snow College as a communications major. Tyler is from West Jordan, UT and graduated from Copper Hills High School in 2014. Tyler played volleyball in high school and loves to follow professional sports, especially the NFL and his favorite team, the New Orleans Saints.
