Menlo sweeps first match at home in three weeks

The Menlo College women's volleyball team played at home for the first time in three weeks Friday, beating Embry-Riddle, 25-13, 25-10, 25-20, to remain undefeated in Cal Pac Conference play.

The Lady Oaks (4-0 in the Cal Pac, 10-5 overall) remain at home for Thursday's match against Pacific Union.

Defensively, Menlo was led by Nicole Yap's match-leading 19 digs, followed by Courtney Calicdan with 10. Embry-Riddle hit just .046 as a team compared to .272 for the Lady Oaks.

Yap and Calicdan recorded a combined 20 kills while Jamie Nurenberg and Bayley Blackney combined for another 14 kills.

Menlo also saw a decided advantage from the service line with Jaime Nurenberg setting the pace with a career-best and match-leading three service aces. Calicdan and Courtney Wong each added a pair while Kelly Sung and Emma Oehler rounded out the effort with one each.
