Menlo College men's volleyball players earn GSAC honors again


Menlo College men’s volleyball players Edin Ibrahimovic and Lucas Larson should be getting used to the attention they draw to themselves and their teammates. For the second straight week, the teammates earned Golden State Athletic Conference honors for Attacker of the Week and Setter of the Week, respectively.

The pair has helped No. 5 Menlo open the season with 11 consecutive victories, including a 3-0 start in GSAC play (9-0 in sets played).

In their most recent action, the Oaks returned to Hayes-Prim Pavilion and swept Ottawa University of Arizona, 25-22, 25-17, and 25-21.

The Oaks led for the majority of the first set but it was a nail-biter to the finish. Set two was a different story as the Oaks were in cruise control and never trailed. Menlo showcased its resiliency in the third set, scoring five of the final six points to complete the sweep.

Ibrahimovic put the match on ice with a powerful kill from the outside. He ended with a match-high 16 kills, giving him 187 for the season.

Larson controlled the offense, recording 34 assists and giving him 318 for the season.

The Oaks remain at home for a match Friday against The Master’s University at 6 p.m.
