During the final full weekend of SCIAC women's volleyball action, the Caltech women's volleyball team dropped a 3-0 (25-8, 25-5, 25-8) decision to La Verne on Friday night then fell to Occidental 3-0 (25-6, 25-12, 25-15) on Saturday afternoon.
In the match against the Leopards, the Caltech offense couldn't get anything clicking without the services of regular setter Megan Jackson as they committed 30 attack errors in their 81 attack attempts. On the other side of the net the LaVerne offense was hitting on all cylinders as they posted a team hitting percentage of .415.
Catie Logan and Danielle Maxwell each had a team high nine kills in the three-game sweep.
The Beavers offense was able to pick it up against the Tigers on Saturday afternoon but they put themselves into an early hole they couldn't climb out of.
In the opening game, the Tigers recorded 11 kills and hit .529 as a team while the Beavers mustered two kills and a negative hitting percentage. Caltech was able to get onto the positive side on offense in the final two games but Occidental rode the first game's momentum to a three game sweep.
The Tigers offense spread the wealth around as eight different players had at least two kills in the match.
Katie Peters had a team high six kills for the Beavers. Fellow senior Ying Ying Tran played well in the back row as she tallied a match high 10 digs.
