Warriors in Westwood

As a warm up for the upcoming 2014-15 women’s basketball season, Westmont traveled to Westwood to take on a little PAC-12 team called the Bruins in an exhibition.

Little, they were not. On average, UCLA, which won the game 92-54, featured players three inches taller than the Warriors.

However, early season exhibition games are not about wins and losses. These games are about getting to see what your team looks in a competitive environment – which is exactly what head coach Kirsten Moore got to do.

“I think there was a lot of good take-aways from today,” said the veteran coach who is entering her 10th year at the helm. “I thought we competed and scrapped and fought a lot better in the second half after having eyes wide open in the first half.

Westmont Avoids a Halloween Scare

(SANTA BARBARA, Calif.) Halloween is an evening marked by scaring people, and tonight the Westmont women’s volleyball team did not disappoint. In a three game match against William Jessup (1-20, 1-9 GSAC), it is safe to say that the Warriors gave everyone in the gym a bit of a fright before they finally buckled down and won the match (25-22, 25-20, 25-16).

“That was a very ugly match. We did not play up to our potential at all. I don’t think that anyone on the team would say that that was a good performance,” cringed head Coach Patti Cook.

Westmont, a team with a significantly better record than Jessup, struggled from the moment the match began; while it was apparent that their opponent showed up to play. “We were lazy and really did not want to work hard in order to win the game. William Jessup came out firing in the first game and showed us that we had to snap out of our lull and actually put some effort into this match,” explained Cook.

With a defense that was struggling, there were a couple of players who were able to make plays happen on offense, despite what they were given. Jessica McCann was one of the women who carried tonight’s team. The sophomore tallied eight kills and had a hand in three blocks. “I was pleased by Jessica’s performance. She has been playing great in practices and tonight she executed what she has been working on,” continued Cook.
