Williams Delivers Game Winner in OT

January 3rd, 2016
Britton Williams

A floater by Warrior senior guard Britton Williams with less the two seconds remaining in overtime gave #14 Westmont Men’s Basketball (12-3) an 83-81 victory over host La Sierra (1-10) on Saturday night. Williams finished the game with nine points, four steals and a couple of rebounds.

“It is always nice to get a competitive win on the road,” said Westmont head coach John Moore. “We had several double-digit wins lately, but haven’t had a close win on the road yet. It is very meaningful and helps build confidence in our team.”

The Warriors led by 12 points with five minutes remaining in regulation, but a 14-2 run by the Golden Eagles resulted in a 72-72 tie at the end of the second frame. The game saw seven ties and 14 lead changes.

Westmont jumped out to an eight-point lead in the overtime period, with ‘and-one’ plays by both Williams and David Gunn (seven points, eight rebounds) and a two-pointer by Sean McDonnell. Once more, however, La Sierra found an answer, producing a 9-1 run that climaxed with a field goal by Keenan Braden with 6.6 seconds to go.


Warriors Show Offensive Versatility in Win

December 9th, 2015
Sean McDonnell

The Warriors’ Cory Blau and Sean McDonnell each put up 24 points as #14 Westmont Men’s Basketball (7-2, 1-0 GSAC) opened Golden State Athletic Conference play on Tuesday night with an 89-80 win over #21 Vanguard (7-1, 0-1).

McDonnell pulled down18 rebounds – the most by a Warrior since Evan Haines pulled down as many against Vanguard on February 27, 2010. McDonnell went seven of 10 from the floor and made 10 of 10 from the charity stripe.

“I thought Sean McDonnell was special all game long, but particularly in the first half,” noted Westmont head coach John Moore. “He put us on his back and carried us.”

Blau came into the game leading the NAIA in three-point field goal percentage, averaging .659 from long distance (27 of 41). But the junior showed his versatility by scoring 21 of his points from within the arc. Blau, who had four first half points, accounted for 14 of the Warriors’ 17 final points.

“Cory picked the right shots to take,” said Moore. “I thought he played with incredible concentration, focus and poise. His scoring started with a very nice pass in the second half. An unselfish play led to him scoring time and time again.”

Volleyball Left Out

November 16th, 2015

Westmont Volleyball (20-7, 11-5 GSAC) was left out of the NAIA Volleyball National Tournament following its Golden State Athletic Conference loss on Saturday night to The Master’s College (20-10, 11-5).

The unexpected exclusion was a direct result of the Warriors falling from number 12 to number 20 in the NAIA Volleyball Coaches Top-25 Final Poll released this morning. The last at-large berth was taken by Southern Oregon (24-4), which was ranked at number 19.

On Saturday evening, the Warrior had an opportunity to not only secure a national tournament bid, but also to receive a first round bye. The top 11 ranked teams receive first round byes and Westmont, ranked at number 12, was aware that the ninth, 10th and 11th ranked teams had already lost in conference tournaments going on throughout the country. A win against The Master’s would likely have moved the Warriors into the top 11.

The loss, however, brought an end to the Warriors’ season.

Loss May Cost Bye

Westmont Volleyball (20-7, 11-5 GSAC), ranked at number 12 in the NAIA National Coaches Poll, ended the regular season on a disappointing note Saturday night in Murchison Gymnasium. The Warriors fell to The Master’s in the final Golden State Athletic Conference match for both teams in four sets by scores of 18-25, 25-21, 25-51, 26-24.

The loss likely means a missed opportunity for the Warriors to receive a bye in the opening round of the NAIA National Tournament. The top 11 ranked teams receive a bye and with several teams ranked above the Warriors suffering losses in conference tournaments around the nation, the possibility of Westmont moving up at least one spot in the national poll seemed likely. The loss, however, has made that doubtful.

The Warriors looked to be in control in the opening frame, recording a .243 team attack percentage and holding the Mustangs to just .077. However, the Mustangs bolted out of the chute in the second set to post a 10-5 lead and grab momentum. The Warriors narrowed the Mustangs’ margin to 23-21, but kills by The Master’s Aubrey Pyburn and Emily Curtin ended the set and evened the match at one set apiece.

Bush, Crowe Honored as Preseason All-Americans

NAIA Preseason All-Americans Alex Bush (1B) and Ryan Crowe (C)

Seniors Alex Bush and Ryan Crowe have been named NAIA Preseason All-Americans as chosen by the NAIA Baseball Coaches Association (NAIA-BCA) All-America Committee. Westmont – ranked at #16 in the NAIA Preseason Poll released today – and Freed-Hardeman (Tenn.) are the only institutions to have multiple preseason selections.

“I am excited for Alex and Ryan to be recognized in this way,” said Westmont head coach Robert Ruiz. “As a program, we try to not get wrapped up in awards or personnel recognition. Those two guys would be the first to tell you that they care more about how good we can be collectively as a team – which is probably why they put themselves in a position to be recognized in the way that they did.”

Bush, who hails from Menifee, was named to the 17-man team as a first baseman. The second-year captain, who received NAIA All-American honorable mention recognition last year, was the 2015 NAIA Gold Glove winner at first base. He was also the Golden State Athletic Conference Player of the Year and a member of the All-GSAC team.

Senior Kelsey Steck received Golden State Athletic Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week honors for her performance in last week’s games. She was named the award winner after a scoring three goals in two conference games – one against Biola and two against Arizona Christian.

The center forward from Valencia was the first to score in each of these games. Last Wednesday against Biola, she had a clinical one-time finish from the top of the six yard line off of a cross from junior Brooke Lillywhite to earn the Warriors the lead for the better part of the game. The Warriors ended up tying Biola 2-2.

The following Saturday, Steck scored the first and third goal of the Warriors’ 5-0 win against Arizona Christian. The first goal came when Lillywhite played a through ball to Steck who slotted the ball into the left side of the goal. Ten minutes later, Steck scored again with a shot from four yards out off of a cross from sophomore Jackie Lopez.

Lopez Scores Twice but Warriors Fall

Jackie Lopez scored two goals vs Northwestern Ohio.

By Kaci Mexico

In the battle between two top ten ranked teams, the number #2 Northwestern Ohio Racers defeated the #7 Westmont Warriors 3-2 in a seesaw battle.

The first goal came in the 22st minute and began with Steck receiving and holding the ball near the top of the 18 yard line. Steck played a square ball through to Lilywhite who slipped Jackie Lopez in stride down the right sideline. Lopez took a one time shot from a sharp angle 10 yards out which hit the inside of the far goal post and shot back into the goal putting the Warriors up 1-0.

The Racers answered back in the 39th minute with a goal off of a free kick on the 18 yard line by Laura Blanchard.

Just before the second half the Racers pulled ahead in the 45th minute when Vanessa Barcelleiro slipped a ball in behind the Warrior defense to Blanchard who shot low and into the corner for her second goal of the game.
