The Lady Oaks win streak hit four in a row Saturday night, as Menlo punched a straight set nod over Pacific Union College to boost their California Pacific Conference record to a perfect 3-0. The 25-20, 25-16, 25-15 victory also put the Oaks overall mark above the .500 plateau, now at 7-6 for the year.
"We are playing more consistently," Menlo third year Head Coach Daniel Rasay said on his squad's current winning ways. "We are not giving up a ton of unforced errors as reflected in our hitting percentages."
This was none more evident than in the way that senior Camille Miller and junior Nicole Yap performed. Miller led all players on the court with a sparkling .438 hitting percentage, while Yap continued her stellar 2012 season with a .355 hitting clip, producing a match high 12 kills in the process.
"Nicole's been pretty dominant on the outside," said the aforementioned Rasay on the San Francisco native. "Anytime you can have solid performances from your outside, it takes pressure off of other hitters."
Menlo's Stephenie Monderine and the Pioneers' Lauren Woolley led the charge in the assists department, both finishing with a match high 60. Monderine also rolled off four service aces to finish in a dead heat with Yap for the match lead.
The Lady Oaks will take a break in their conference slate, as they get set to take on Mills College on Friday, October 5th inside Haynes-Prim Pavilion. Menlo previously took out the Cyclones in straight sets back on September 14th, winning all three games by identical 25-7 margins. First serve is slated for 7:00pm.
