Women’s Swimming & Diving
BERKELEY – Cal sophomore Phoebe LaMay, who set a pair of school records in November, has been named the Pac-12 Diver of the Month.
LaMay won the 1-meter board competition in Cal's dual meet against Texas Nov. 11, and her score of 314.18 broke her own Golden Bear mark of 313.25 reached during her freshman season.
A couple of weeks later at the Texas Diving Invitational, LaMay totaled 335.80 on 3-meter, edging the previous record of 334.15 by Anne Kastler in 2014.
LaMay is Cal's third Pac-12 Diver of the Month, and first since Kastler earned the honor in January 2014.
BERKELEY - The California women's basketball team has a chance to set the best record in program history on Thursday night, hosting Sacramento State at 7 p.m. at Haas Pavilion. At 7-0, the Golden Bears have matched the previous program record set during the 2014-15 and 2008-09 seasons.
Thursday's game is the ninth meeting all-time between the Bears and Hornets, with Cal winning the last four games. The Bears re-wrote the record books in last years' 117-99 win over Sacramento State, setting program bests for points scored (117), field goals made (52), field goal percentage (69.3; 52-75), and assists (37). Kristine Anigwe scored a career-high 43 points to lead the Bears, five points shy of the highest-scoring performance in program history. Then-sophomore Mikayla Cowling finished one rebound shy of a triple-double, registering 11 points, 10 assists, and nine boards against the Hornets
