SAN BRUNO, Calif. --- West Coast Conference women's volleyball will continue conference play this week in a nationally-televised match between Saint Mary's and San Diego on Wednesday, October 26.


  • No. 18 Pepperdine extended its win streak to nine by ending No. 17 San Diego's nine-match winning streak with a sweep at Firestone Fieldhouse. With the 25-20, 25-17, 25-17 victory, the Waves improve to 9-0 in WCC play and 15-5 overall, while the Toreros fall to 7-2 in the WCC and 22-2 overall.

  • For the second time in as many matches, Pepperdine senior Lilla Frederick reached a significant career milestone. With a tied-for-season-best 21 digs versus BYU, the outside hitter surpassed the 1,000 career digs benchmark, becoming just the ninth Wave to achieve the feat.
