lt;bgt;Pepperdine 3, Santa Clara lt;/bgt;lt;brgt; In perhaps the most important West Coast Conference match of the season, the fourth-ranked Pepperdine Waves survived in five-games at No. 13 Santa Clara and took home the conference trophy for its third time in as many years. Two-time WCC Player of the Year, Katie Wilkins, proved deserving of the honor for a third-straight year as she once again dominated at the net and spiked down 8 kills, accounted for 13 digs, and added six blocks. lt;pgt; lt;Pgt;13;The scores were: 1-30, 33-31, 30-4, 1-30, and 1-8. lt;pgt; lt;Pgt;13;With the victory, the Waves improve to 3- overall and a perfect 13-0 in WCC action, while the Broncos fall to 19-9 on the season and 10-3 in the conference. lt;pgt; lt;Pgt;13;While Wilkins stole the show at the net, sophomore Katy Daly recorded one of her best season performances on both sides of the net after completing 1 kills and 1 digs. Lyndsey Hache' finished with a respectable 1 kills and freshman Sophia Milo tallied a match-high seven block assists.lt;pgt; lt;Pgt;13;Five Santa Clara players ended the match in double-digit kills led by Toni Muratore who posted 0 in the loss. Becky Potter chipped in 18 kills and 17 digs while Kim McGiven added 17 kills of her own. Cassie Perret had 11 kills on the night with Becky Biniek's 10 rounding out the SCU players in double digits. lt;pgt; lt;Pgt;13;Potter's 18 kills moved her into first place all-time on the career kills list at Santa Clara as her new total of 1,7 eclipses that of former teammate Ynez Carrasco who registered 1,748 kills in her four years on the Mission Campus. lt;pgt; lt;Pgt;13; lt;Pgt;13; lt;Pgt;13;lt;bgt;Loyola Marymount 3, San Diego 1lt;/bgt;lt;brgt; No. 16 Loyola Marymount jumped out to an early two-game lead and defeated San Diego at USD's Jenny Craig Pavilion Friday night. The Lions (-, 10-3 WCC) handed the Toreros (17-11, 6-7 WCC) their fifth consecutive loss, winning by game scores of 30-0, 30-19, -30, 30-6. lt;pgt; lt;Pgt;13;Senior Kealani Kimball killed and teammate Kelli Nerison put down 1 to pace LMU, who hit .368 as a team in the second game. lt;pgt; lt;Pgt;13;After heading into the locker room with a pair of wins, LMU faced a hungry San Diego squad in game three. A team-high .0 hitting percentage helped San Diego claimed the third set -30.lt;pgt; USD junior Kristen Hurst killed a career-high Friday night and sophomore Lindsey Sherburne passed out 63 assists. However the Toreros could not bounce back from its sluggish start, exchanging points in the decisive fourth game before losing the frame 30-6. lt;pgt; lt;Pgt;
