For the second time this season the Banana Slugs of UC Santa Cruz got the better of the Menlo College Lady Oaks.

The Banana Slugs, led by eight blocks and a .283 hitting percentage, beat visiting Menlo, 25-13, 27-25, 25-20, in a nonconference match Wednesday.

UC Santa Cruz picked up where they left off last Thursday and jumped out to an early 1-0 lead by defeating Menlo 25-13 in the first set. The Lady Oaks came back with a vengeance in the second set but fell short in a 27-25 heartbreaker. Leading 2-0, Santa Cruz sealed the deal 25-20 in the third set.

Menlo junior Courtney Calicdan tied for a match-best 11 kills and also chipped in seven digs and a pair of service aces. Nicole Yap and Courtney Wong were next in line in total kills with seven and six respectively while Jamie Nurenberg chipped in three kills. Yap was second on the Lady Oaks with nine digs behind team-leader Renn Isobe’s 13.

UC Santa Cruz’s Kim Rabii again played a big part in the win with 11 kills and nine digs followed by Elena Echeverria with 7 kills and three digs.

The loss drops Menlo to 6-5 (1-0) on the season while UC Santa Cruz improves to 12-3. Menlo returns to action Friday night as they travel to Oakland to wrap up non-conference play with a rematch against Mills College at 7 p.m.
