Cal Volleyball vs. St. Mary Gaels
When: 7 PM PT
Score update: twitter (@CalVolleyball)
With less than a week before the supremely tough Pac-12 Conference season begins (@ Stanford on the Pac-12 Networks next Wednesday 9/19), Cal Volleyball has two more nonconference games this weekend against local team.
Cal hosts St. Mary tonight and then go across the bay for a rematch against San Francisco tomorrow night at 6:30 PT (Cal lost to San Francisco in neutral court earlier this year). The team has to play a lot of youngster so far this year with key injuries to Correy Johnson and Robin Rostratters. Freshman libero fill-in Mary McKennon and fellow freshmen outside hitters Nikki Gombar and Lara Vukasovic has improved tremendously since the beginning of the season. Shannon Hawari has also really stepped up, winning the MVP honor in the Cal Molten Classics last weekend. Despite some shocking early losses and being unranked currently, Cal Volleyball has been trending in the correct direction since the huge win over Hawaii at Hawaii.
