PASADENA (Oct. 24, 2017) – Freshman Krystyna Maruszko (Redondo Beach, Calif. / Marymount) generated production on the offensive and defensive end in Caltech's SCIAC clash with visiting Whittier College on Senior Night.
Maruszko led the Beavers with 10 digs and nine assists while also putting forth four kills. Maruszko also had the team's only service ace and solo block of the night. Sophomore Lauren Li (Bellaire, Texas / Bellaire), meanwhile led all Beavers with five kills on 19 total attempts. The young Beavers made their strongest push against the Poets (18-7, (10-4 SCIAC)) early with a 16-point first set.
Caltech's two senior members, Mayra Melendez (Salinas, Calif. / York) and Rachel Ng (Millbrae, Calif. / Mills), along with long-time student assistant Kevin Ye were honored prior to the game in a brief ceremony citing their contributions to the team and community in addition to future aspirations.
