After releasing their West Coast Conference schedule two weeks ago, WSU volleyball revealed nine non-conference opponents for the 2024 season. 

Unlike previous years, the Cougs will not be hosting an in-season weekend Tournament. The Cougar Challenge, which they’ve hosted every consecutive season under the Jen Greeny tenure (excluding 2020) will not return for the new coaching staff. 

Instead, WSU will host just one match on its still new home court before conference play. Started the year with a road tournament in Omaha, Nebraska, against Wyoming, Houston and Omaha, then traveling to Cheney, Washington, to take on Eastern Washington, the Cougs will play at home for the first time against EWU Sept. 6.

Following their lone home match, they defend the Apple Cup title they swept last season on the road against the Huskies Sept. 13. While on the west side, they will also take on UC Davis in a neutral site contest. 

To close out non-conference play, WSU will play CSU Northridge and Long Beach State. Both matches will be played in Long Beach, California. 

All said and done, the WSU schedule consists of 27 matches with 18 being against WCC opponents. Out of the 27 matches, only 10 will be played in Pullman.
