Colorado's Nicole Edelman was named the tournament's MVP, while Kerra Schroeder was named the defensive MVP. Alexis Austin and Cierra Simpson were also honored as members of the All-Tournament team. The Buffs went 3-0 at the tournament with wins against Northwestern State and Appalachian State on Friday.
CU (8-1) has won eight matches is a row to tie the fifth longest streak in school history. It is the longest streak since 1997 when the Buffs had a 10-match win streak, which tied the longest string of victories.
"Tonight's performance caps off a very tough weekend for this team, and I am pleased not only with the three wins and the improvement we made as a program, but most importantly the character and resiliency this group showed," CU coach Liz Kritza said. "With all the possible distractions while our home state is experiencing a catastrophic event, this group of players, coaches and staff pulled together and put forth a strong performance and really showed great character."
The Buffs are off until Sept. 24 when they will travel to Salt Lake City to open the Pac-12 Conference schedule against Utah. That match is scheduled 7 p.m. and will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
