Menlo's GSAC season comes down to one volleyball match

 

In the final push for a regular season Golden State Athletic Conference title, the Menlo College women’s volleyball team put itself in a position to finish atop the conference standings Friday night with a four-set victory over host Life Pacific in San Dimas.

The Oaks (17-9, 13-4) are in a three way tie for the lead entering Saturday's 2 p.m. showdown with host No. 23 Hope International, also tied for first, in Fullerton.

Junior middle blocker Jaden Scott produced another huge game in a pivotal moment in the Oaks season. She recorded 10 kills to run her season total to 225, second only to teammate and conference kills leader Moea Kekauoha.

Scott also added four digs, an ace, and a block. She has shown steady improvement in each of her three years. Stepping in for the injured Emily Sunada, Scott has improved in every statistical category this season, including more than doubling her kill total of 91 from a season ago.

Oaks senior setter Pamela Dungo served five aces as Menlo continues to hold the hot hand at the service line, coming up with 15 overall.

JaNay Wooten and Lucyanna Herrera each added three digs and Nicole DiMartino recorded two. The Oaks have 211 service aces as a team, the most since 2017.

A victory over Hope International would give Menlo the top seed. The Oaks hold the tie-breaker over Westmont, the other co-leader.
