Westmont Whips Westcliff for 11th Straight Win

Samantha Neely pounded down 10 kills while Cassidy Rea, Hali Galloway and Audrey Brown each added eight as the #7 Westmont Warriors (11-1) defeated the Warriors of Westcliff (2-5) in straight sets 25-22, 25-11, 25-10.

Westmont has now won 11 matches in a row and has a winning streak of 27 straight sets.

"We took a little bit of time trying to figure out what Westcliff was doing," acknowledged Westmont head coach Patti Cook. "They came out strong with scrappy defensive plays and some good arms. Their Kaitlin Meyer, even though she was small, was very effective. I can see why she usually gets the most sets."

Meyer connected for four of her eight kills in the opening frame.

"Once we got our wits about us and figured out what they wanted to do on offense, I thought we did a much better job stopping them in sets two and three."

The match was the final non-conference showdown of the regular season. Saturday, Westmont returns to Golden State Athletic Conference play with a road trip to Santa Clarita to take on The Master's.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
