LOS ANGELES (Oct. 17, 2015) – Seniors Cat Jamshidi (Burke, Va. / Lake Braddock Secondary School) and Amarise Little (Orlando, Fla. / Freedom) were each responsible for six points in the Caltech volleyball team's defeat at Occidental College on Saturday evening.
Oxy claws closer to .500 on the season at 9-10 overall and 5-6 in the SCIAC while Caltech dips to 2-17 (0-12).
The Tigers jumped out to a 15-2 lead in the first set and traded points with the Beavers the rest of the way to a 25-13 victory. The hosts cruised through the second and third sets as well, 25-10 and 25-6, as the Caltech offense struggled to get anything going.
Jamshidi and Little recorded six and five kills, respectively, while Maiyuran posted 11 assists for her fifth consecutive match in double digits and matched Jamshidi with a team-high seven digs. Little notched two block assists for her fourth multi-block performance in the last five matches.
Head Coach Tom Gardner and the Beavers will host Chapman University (8-10, 5-5) on Tuesday, Oct. 20 at 7:30 p.m.
