Oct. 8, 2004
LOS ANGELES, CA - Despite the solid play of senior middle hitter Camille Leffall, UCLA continued its mastery over California as the No. 17-ranked Golden Bears' women's volleyball team (7-6, 2-2) lost to No. 10 UCLA (11-3, 4-1) 30-20, 30-27, 30-28, Friday night at Pauley Pavilion. Cal was bidding to defeat the Bruins for the first time in school history and are now 0-46 all-time versus UCLA. The two teams first played in 1980.
Leffall led the Bears with 15 kills and hit .400 (15k, 3e, 30att) for the match. Leffall also had a season-high seven total blocks (one block solo, six block assists) and now has 371 career total blocks, second on the Cal all-time block list. Senior outside hitter Gabrielle Abernathy added 12 kills and sophomore libero Jillian Davis had a team-high 22 digs.
UCLA was led by Nana Meriwether's 11 kills and senior setter Krystal McFarland recorded 33 assists.
The Bears next take on No. 2-ranked, and two-time defending national champion USC, Saturday, Oct. 9 at 5 p.m. at the Lyon Center on the USC campus. Last year Cal was the only team to take the undefeated Trojans to five games, losing 3-2 Oct. 18 at Haas Pavilion.
