May 09, 2017

SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- The West Coast Conference has named its Beach Volleyball Pair of the Month for April.

BRITTANY HOWARD & CORINNE QUIGGLE - PEPPERDINE

Graduate student Brittany Howard and junior Corinne Quiggle excelled in the No. 2 position for the Waves in April, posting an 11-2 dual record to propel their season's overall record to 24-3.  The pair posted a 6-2 record against nationally ranked opposition and amassed a 23-6 record by sets in 13 matches-played.  The duo tallied eight two-set wins, three three-set wins and clinched a Waves' win on three separate occasions. 

The Waves went 3-0 at the West Coast Conference Championships, helping the Waves to the second-consecutive WCC Championship crown.  During the tournament, the pair earned three straight-set wins, including the clinching win in the 4-1 title-match win over Loyola Marymount. 

During the month against ranked opponents, the duo first downed No. 12 Grand Canyons No. 2 pair with a 21-14, 21-16 result to help the Waves to a 4-1 win on the day.  The duo then defeated No. 5 Long Beach State's Kobi Pekich and Sasha Karelov with a 21-15, 21-14 mark en route to a 3-2 Waves' win.  In the month's first match-up against No. 6 Hawai'i, Quiggle and Howard posted a 21-18, 21-16 victory against Nikki Taylor and Kai'wi Schucht in the Waves 3-2 win on the road.  

In Tallahassee at the FSU Invitational, the pair went 3-1 against four ranked opponents, starting with a 21-15, 19-21, 15-8 win over No. 9 Stetson's Kaylee Anderson and Emily Carroll towards Pepperdine's 5-0 sweep.  On day two of the tournament, the pair downed No. 14 Florida International's Taija Thomas and Katie Friesen with a 21-17, 21-15 mark towards a 3-2 Waves' win.  The pair then clinched Pepperdine's 4-1 win over No. 4 Florida State with a 17-21, 21-19, 15-12 win over Vanessa Freire and Sierra Sanchez.  The win marked the first time the Seminoles had ever lost at home with a 26-0 previous record against opponents.
