Cal Sweeps Arizona In Volleyball, Snaps 12-Match Losing Streak To Wildcats
Oct. 12, 2002
TUCSON, Ariz.- The Cal volleyball team snapped Arizona's 12-match winning streak over the Golden Bears with a 32-30, 30-27, 31-29 sweep in McKale Center on Saturday night. The loss comes on the heals of Arizona's dramatic five-game win over fourth-ranked Stanford just a night ago.
Freshman Kim Glass stood out again for Arizona despite the loss. The first-year outside hitter followed her 28-kill effort against Stanford on Friday with 25 kills on .373 hitting Saturday against the Golden Bears. On the opposite of the net, Cal was paced by Mia Jerkov's match-high 26 kills. The two outside hitters were the only players to figure into double-digits in the match.
Arizona had game point in both the first and third games, but were unable to break though for a win in either frame. The loss drops Arizona to 8-7 for the season and 3-4 in Pac-10 play.
Arizona will take to the road next week with a trip to Oregon to face the Ducks in Eugene on Thursday and the Beavers in Corvallis on Friday. Both matches are set for 7 p.m. first serves.
