The Colonials will have a busy week as they will play three matches. With one road game and two home games, let’s look at the week ahead for Robert Morris.

After coming off of an impressive win in five sets to Youngstown State, the Colonials are already off to Kentucky to take on Northern Kentucky Norse. This will make the Colonials the second time to play the Norse this season.

The Colonials came up short against the Norse in their first matchup, swept in three sets. The Colonials will have some revenge on their minds as they will look to even the series against the Norse. The Colonials will have Horizon League Player of the Week, Natalie Stepanovich to lead the charge in this one.

The Colonials played the Norse closely last time, losing eight points. This was probably one of the better games played this season by a Colonials team that wants a win and will look to kick into overdrive to come out victorious.

Then, the Colonials will have two home matches on Friday and Saturday. Their Friday matchup will be against Oakland, who dominated the Colonials in a three-to-nothing sweep in straight sets. The Colonials did not break the twenty-point mark in that contest.

For Robert Morris, they will have to focus on star player Ainsley Fuse, who had ten kills and five blocks for the Golden Grizzles. The Colonials needed a better attack to get around the powerful block of Oakland.

Then, the Colonials will have a short turnaround and take on a team they beat earlier in the year at Cleveland State. The Colonials went on the road and hit the Vikings by a score of three sets to one. The Colonials will look to sweep the season series against Cleveland State and gain more momentum for their push for the playoffs.

The last time against Cleveland State, Robert Morris was led by the freshman Stepanovich.

She had a double-double with 15 kills and 24 digs. She will look to lead the Colonials, along with freshman Azra Eric, to sweep the Vikings.

All of these games you can find on ESPN+ and the ESPN app. You can also follow along for the home matchups with us here at Colonials Sports Network.
