Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Ali Troost and Torey Ellick each recorded 11 kills to pace the 22nd-ranked University of San Diego women's volleyball team to a 3-0 win over cross-town rival San Diego State University Friday evening at the Jenny Craig Pavilion. Head Coach Jennifer Petrie recorded her 200th career win with the sweep over the Aztecs.

With the 25-21, 25-17, 25-14 win, the Toreros improve to 8-3 overall, run their winning streak to seven matches and have now won seven straight against the Aztecs and 11 of the last 12 meetings. With the loss, the Aztecs fall to 5-7 overall.

Troost led the team's offense as she recorded her match-best 11 kills on 19 swings, while committing no attack errors to post a .579 attack percentage. Ellick recorded her match-best 11 kills on 21 attempts while recording two errors to post a .429 attack percentage. Kayleen Webster tied for a match-best 11 digs, while Kelsi Myers recorded a match-high 36 assists in helping lead the Toreros to a .299 team attack percentage.

In the first set, the Toreros came out hitting on all cylinders, as a Ellick kill off a set from Myers sparked the run and a Troost kill off a set from Myers bookended the run to give USD all the momentum. The Aztecs then began to claw their way back into the set, as a Hannah Evans kill sparked a 8-4 SDSU run, pulling San Diego State to within two at 13-11. The Toreros and Aztecs then traded point-for-point over the next several minutes, before USD began to slowly pull away and take a 22-19 lead on a Troost service ace. USD never looked back as they went on to take the first set 25-21.



In the second set, the Aztecs managed to keep things close in the early going, as both teams sea-sawed back and forth with both teams taking their turn with the lead and neither team having a lead bigger than one. Then with the score knotted at 10, a Troost kill off a set from Colleen Carlson ignited a 10-1 USD run that was capped on a SDSU attack error to give the Toreros all the momentum and a comfortable 20-11 lead. USD never looked back as they eased their way to a 25-17 win to go into the break up 2-0.

In the third and final set, USD jumped out to a early 10-5 lead, and never looked back. The Toreros would hit for a .333 clip and take advantage of a -0.30 attack percentage for the Aztecs to ease their way to their seventh consecutive win over the Aztecs.

The Toreros will return to action on Thursday as they begin their West Coast Conference title defense on the road at Loyola Marymount University. The match begins at 7 p.m.
