Westmont women’s volleyball improved to 9-0 with a sweep of Hope International in a doubleheader at Murchison Gymnasium. The Warriors won the first match 25-15, 25-15, 25-22, then took the second 25-15, 25-20, 25-21.
“We started off a little sluggish in the first set of the first match, but we quickly turned it on,” acknowledged Westmont head coach Ruth McGolpin. “Our offensive prowess was on fire today. Some of the things we worked on in practice this week — running a triple block, coverage, tough serving and serve receive — were spot on.
“A highlight for me was Jessie Terlizzi who played right side for us,” continued McGolpin. “She was on fire in both matches.”
Terlizzi, a 6-foot freshman from Scottsdale, Ariz., tallied 13 kills in each match with a combined attack percentage of .434.
Also contributing offensively in the first match was senior outside hitter Hali Galloway with eight kills and a .313 attack percentage.
In the second match, sophomore middle blocker Lexi Malone matched Terlizzi’s 13 kills while recording a .542 attack percentage.
Floor generals Sydney Dunn and Keelyn Kistner kept the offensive running effectively while notching 36 and 40 assists, respectively, over the two games. Senior Libero Madison Morrison recorded 36 digs.
The Warriors (6-0 in GSAC) are scheduled to play again on Monday when they host Vanguard at 7 p.m.
