On Tuesday, Oct 31st, in a Halloween thriller at Roberts Pavilion, Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (CMS) women’s volleyball served up a wicked sick victory. The Athenas made sure the Beavers didn’t stand a ghost of a chance, sweeping them 3-0 with a fang-tastic performance that sent Caltech howling back to their dams.
Hens on a warpath; The Occidental Tigers look more like house cats in a 3-1 sweep. Ever since the hard loss to CMS in the Sixth Street Rivalry, P-P has rallied, tallying up five straight wins and making a run for contention in conference.
Dominating through the decades; This Stag sweep marks the nineteenth consecutive sixth-street loss for the sagehens volleyball team history. With five consecutive SCIAC section championships, a cast of killers, and zero sets dropped in league play so far this season, the Athenas are flawless. The Sagehens made it competitive, but they couldn’t stand with the champs.
After a stretch of losses to close out pre-season play, the Pomona-Pitzer (P-P) Volleyball team took care of business last Friday against Whittier, sweeping the Poets and sending them home empty handed.
No one is surprised and 3/5 of the 5Cs are happy. The No. 1 ranked CMS women’s volleyball team sent the Sagehens back to their nests with beaks dragging on Saturday when they defeated them three sets to none. This Sixth Street rivalry game ended in favor of the Athenas, who are continuing their unbeaten streak and have yet to lose a single set in conference play.
Attending an open session with the Claremont Men’s Club Volleyball team, a TSL contributing writer presents an inside dig on the squad’s competitive nature.
After their first conference loss of the season, CMS volleyball (15-3, 6-1 SCIAC) bounced back this week to record two consecutive shutout wins.
P-P’s volleyball team (9-8, 3-4 SCIAC) ground out five sets against Redlands on Friday night and came out on top three sets to two. Naomi Chen-Mallouk PO ’23 led the Hens with 17 kills.
It’s been an inauspicious start to conference play for the Sagehens (6-7, 0-3 SCIAC) whose string of losses this week has them still searching for their first SCIAC win.
The Athenas (11-2, 2-0 SCIAC) left Redlands Friday with a 3-0 win and an encouraging start to conference play.
