PASADENA, Calif. (Oct. 24, 2015) – Senior Cat Jamshidi (Burke, Va. / Lake Braddock Secondary School) broke the Caltech women's volleyball career kills record on Saturday night against Pomona-Pitzer Colleges.

Jamshidi matched the record with three kills in the first set and surpassed the mark in the second with the 555th of her career.  She also ranks among the Top 3 all-time in digs and solo blocks.

The Sagehens claimed a 3-0 victory to even their record at .500, both overall (11-11) and in the SCIAC (6-6), while the Beavers drop to 2-20 (0-15).  Pomona-Pitzer was in control throughout, recording set scores of 25-8, 25-10 and 25-9 as the Beavers only strung together consecutive points once in the match.

Jamshidi paced the Beavers with four kills while senior Meghana Pagadala (Rock Island, Ill. / Rivermont Collegiate) recorded nine digs and junior Kate Lewis (San Antonio, Texas / Ronald Reagan) tallied two blocks.
