Badgers Finish Season, Face CNCC, USUE – Snow College Athletics

OPENING SERVE: The Snow College women’s volleyball team will play its final two matches of the season against Colorado Northwestern Community College Thursday followed by a match with No. 6 Utah State University Eastern Saturday.
The Badgers are coming off back-to-back losses against No. 1 Salt Lake Community College (3-0) and the College of Southern Idaho (3-2).  It was just the second time all season the Badgers have lost back-to-back games when they lost to SLCC and USUE September 24 and 30, respectively.
Snow College defeated CNCC October 1 in a 3-0 sweep which started a mini three-game winning streak.  The Badgers will look to avenge its loss against USUE after a 3-2 loss in Price earlier in the season.
The Badgers currently sit in third place within the Scenic West Athletic Conference standings.  They cannot go any higher that the three seed.  They maintain a half-game league over CSI and would need to win both games this weekend and hope for a CSI loss in one of its final matches against SLCC, CNCC, or USUE.
Thursday’s matchup is scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m. with Saturday’s match starting at 1:00 p.m. inside the Horne Activity Center.  For video streaming and live stat information, visit
KNOW YOUR FOE: USU-E comes into the matchup with a 21-4 overall record and a 5-1 record within the SWAC.  The Eagles have earned five victories over ranked teams so far this season and had won 17 straight matches before suffering a 3-1 loss to No. 2 Salt Lake Community College
USUE finished last season with a 20-8 overall record and a second-round loss in the Region 18 tournament to Snow College.  The Badgers won that matchup 3-0.
Snow College has mostly controlled the matchup history having won 17 out of 23 matchups with the Eagles dating back to 2011. The Badgers won two out of the three matchups with USUE last season. The Badgers claimed a 3-1 victory at home September 23. The Eagles got their revenge a few weeks later winning 3-1 in Price, October 16.  As mentioned earlier Snow College got the better in the rubber match in the Region 18 Final.
CNCC has struggled to begin the season and owns an 0-11 overall record and 0-5 inside the SWAC.  The Spartans came into the season after a 2021 season that saw them go 1-23 and 0-10 in conference play.  
Snow College has an unblemished record against the Spartans dating back to 2011 going a perfect 24-0.  The Badgers picked up a pair of 3-0 sweeps last season against CNCC.
LAST TIME OUT: The Snow College women’s volleyball team suffered a pair of losses over the weekend to Salt Lake Community College and the College of Southern Idaho.
The Badgers had won three straight entering Friday’s matchup with the No. 1 Bruins, who had won 12 straight games including a 3-0 sweep against Snow College September 24.
The Badgers would suffer the same outcome against SLCC Friday as they failed to win a set.  The Bruins used a 6-0 run near the end of the first set to win 25-19.  Set two had to go overtime and was truly back and forth throughout.  The Badgers were one point away from winning the set, but the Bruins rallied an eventually won 32-30.  SLCC would finish off the sweep winning set three 25-18.
Following the sweep, the Badgers turned their attention to the Golden Eagles where they suffered a heartbreaking 3-2 loss.  Snow College won sets one and three, 25-21 and 25-14 but lost sets two and four, 25-14 and 25-16, to set up a decisive fifth set.  Snow College rallied to level the score at 10, but the Golden Eagles won five of the final eight points to claim the 15-13 victory. 
UP NEXT: Snow College will participate in the 2022 NJCAA Region 18 Tournament.  As mentioned earlier, the Badgers would face USUE in the first round of the tournament if the season ended today. For match start times, video streaming and live stat information, visit
