PORTLAND, Ore. - Three different Toreros recorded double-digit kills to help propel the 19th-ranked University of San Diego women's volleyball team to a 3-1 West Coast Conference win over the University of Portland Thursday evening at the Chiles Center.

With the 25-15, 25-19, 21-25, 25-22 win, the Toreros improve to 19-5 overall, improve to 11-3 in the WCC, and complete the season sweep over Portland. With the loss, the Pilots fall to 6-22 overall and 0-14 in the WCC.

Katie Hoekman paced the Torero offense, as she recorded 16 kills on 23 swings, while only committing three errors to hit for a .565 clip. Alaysia Brown was the second USD player in double digit kills as she recorded 15, while Sandra Lozic chipped in with 10 kills. Rachel Alvey led the team with 32 assists, while C'era Oliveira posted a double-double with 10 assists and 11 digs. As a team, USD hit .257.

In the first set, an Alvey service ace sparked a 4-0 San Diego run that was capped on a Portland attack error to give the Toreros the early momentum. After the Pilots grabbed their first pint, USD kept the pedal to the medal and went on a 7-2 run to take an 11-3 lead, which forced the home team into a timeout. This lead proved to be too much for the Pilots to overcome, as USD cruised its way to a 25-15 win.

In the second set, Portland surprised San Diego and they raced out to a 6-0 lead to grab the early momentum, and forced the Toreros into a timeout. Portland then managed to maintain that six-point lead for the first half of the set. Then with the Toreros trailing 16-10, a Brown kill sparked an 8-2 USD run, to pull the two teams even at 18-all. After a Portland timeout, a Lozic kill jump started a 7-1 USD run to close out the frame and give USD a 2-0 lead in the set.

 

 

In the third set, Portland again grabbed the early momentum, as they raced out to a 6-1 lead. After the Toreros managed to close the gap down to two at 10-8, a Portland kill then sparked a 9-3 Pilots run that gave the home team a 19-11 lead. USD could not overcome this deficit, as the Pilots avoided the sweep with a 25-21 win.

In the fourth and final set, the Pilots would grab the early momentum once again, as they jumped out to a 4-1 lead. Then with the home team leading 10-8, a Brown kill off an Alvey set sparked a 4-1 run to give USD back the lead at 12-10, which forced the Pilots into a timeout. Portland would manage to stay close for the remainder of the set, but never were able to get closer than two, as USD finished off the match with a 25-22 win in the fourth set.

USD will return to action on Saturday at 1 p.m., as they battle Gonzaga University in a crucial WCC match.
