The Menlo College men's volleyball team is undefeated when playing at Woodside High. The Oaks played their first match there Friday due to scheduling conflicts and came away with a three-set sweep of visiting Arizona Christian in Golden State Athletic Conference action. The Oaks improve to 10-10, 3-5 in the GSAC.

How Sweep It Is
For the second consecutive meeting between the two teams, the Oaks swept the Firestorm. In Phoenix back on March 1st, Menlo won 25-20, 25-16, 25-21. On Friday night in Woodside, the Oaks won 25-21, 25-13, 25-21 to conclude the season sweep.

New Look Starting Lineup
The Oaks featured a different bunch of players getting significant playing time on Friday including a new-look starting lineup. Mark Macaspac was one of the players to play the whole game and he took advantage adding five kills, five digs and a service ace. Ryan Hansell and Benjamin Carrithers split some action at the middle position and got on the board. Hansell had five kills while Carrithers tallied one.

Solid Defense
Six different Oaks tallied a block assist or solo block on Friday night, led by Chase Direito and Edin Ibrahimovic with a solo block and block assist each. Jarrod Jordan was a part of a pair of blocks himself. Trey Lake led in digs with nine followed by Ibrahimovic with eight. Macaspac and Pedro Almeida each added five as well.

The Serve
Four different players had service aces for the Oaks in what was a roller coaster night from the service line. In total, Menlo tallied six aces but countered it with 15 errors. On the other side, Arizona Christian also struggled to get the ball over the net, adding nine service errors of its own. Ibrahimovic and Jordan each added two aces to pace the Oaks.

Up Next ...
Menlo will once again travel to Woodside High School to wrap up the weekend of conference action. The Oaks will host Hope International on Saturday at 7 p.m.
