On August 30th, the UNLV volleyball team opened their 2019 season splitting the double-header matchup on the first day of the Wildcat Invitational.
Game one for the Rebels was against the Weber State Wildcats, where they would lose to the Wildcats 3-1. In game two, the Rebels bounced back from their loss and defeated CSUN Matadors 3-2.
Freshman Shelby Capllonch made her debut on Friday, and recorded 16 kills and 20 digs against Weber State. However, Capllonch enhanced that performance with 22 kills and 11 digs against CSUN. Both performances were considered to be the match-best.
Capllonch was not the only player to have a stunning back-to-back performance.
