On the road for the first time in Golden State Athletic Conference play, Menlo College women's volleyball team opened with a match against San Diego Christian on Friday night. The Oaks had an unbeaten mark in conference play on the line, and after splitting the first two sets on the night, the Oaks came back to win the final two sets of the night. After Menlo's 3-1 win, the Oaks are now 7-4 (3-0) on the season while the Hawks fall to 3-6 (0-2).

Tone Setters
Moea Kekauoha and Jaden Scott have been the talk of the Oaks thus far this season. Among all players, they have continued to show that they are among the top players at their respective positions in the GSAC. Kekauoha and Scott led the Oaks in kills and both posted above-average attack percentage performances. Kekauoha led the Oaks with 12 kills and 18 digs on the night while Scott posted 11 kills and three assisted blocks.

Wild Second Set
Neither team led by more than three points and San Diego Christian eventually emerged victorious. The Hawks took a 20-17 lead late, but a service error gave the Oaks momentum. It turned into three more points for the Oaks, all set up from attack errors by the Hawks. After a timeout from San Diego Christian, and the Oaks leading 21-20, the two sides traded blows, forcing bonus volleyball. Kills from Lauren Schaefer, Kekauoha, and Scott helped give the Oaks a 25-24 lead, but the Hawks took the final points, highlighted by a kill from Anekka Guy, and the Hawks got their one set of the night, 27-25.

It's Been a While
The Oaks last opened conference play at 3-0 was six years ago, when Menlo competed in the Cal Pac Conference. The Oaks went 6-0 and eventually won the title, part of a run of three-straight conference titles. Getting to 3-0 this year was also Schaefer and Pamela Dungo, who fit Menlo’s offense perfectly. Schaefer added a season-best nine kills while Dungo recorded 42 assists.
