Menlo College senior outside hitter Courtney Calicdan waited all of a few seconds to establish that she may be an even better volleyball player than she was when she was named Cal Pac Player of the Year.
Calicdan, who divided her time between right-side hitter and outside hitter last year, also forged a hitting percentage of .548, and, to show some versatility, added four aces from the serving stripe.
Menlo, two-time defending Cal Pac champions, will face a good test on the road next weekend, competing at the Asics/Wyndham Labor Day Classic in Irvine.
The Lady Oaks are scheduled to meet two teams currently ranked in the NAIA Top 25 in No. 22 Vanguard and No. 19 The Master's College. They also meet Westmont, which beat Menlo in last year's NAIA national tournament, and Olivet Nazarene.
The Lady Oaks take a short trip to San Francisco State on Tuesday for a 7 p.m. scrimmage against the Gators.
