The third-ranked Husky volleyball team used a wide array of contributors Thursday to overwhelm Coppin State in straight sets in front of 1,310 fans at Alaska Airlines Arena.

Washington (7-0) cruised to a 25-4, 25-11, 25-18 win, using 12 different players. The four points allowed in the first set is a school record since rally scoring began in 2001.

“We came out and we were really on task, and then all of a sudden we weren’t on task, we miss serves and miss a couple sets,” said coach Jim McLaughlin, “so we’ve got to take more ownership of what we do. We’re going to have to play a complete game at some point.”

The Huskies hit .388 for the match and opened things with a 20-1 run on senior Jenna Orlandini’s serving. Junior Kaleigh Nelson had 10 kills and senior Kylin Muñoz had nine on a .471 attacking clip.
