Westmont Volleyball Coach Patti Cook has announced the addition of three incoming freshman to her roster for the 2014 season – Taylor Beckman of Lake Oswego, Oregon, Lindsay Paulo of Riverside and Mila Maricic of Harbor City.

“I am thrilled to have this strong group of freshmen joining us,” said Cook. “They are an athletic class who has succeeded on the court and in the classroom and bring a high level of volleyball to an already solid group of returners.

“I know each of them have high expectations for what they want to accomplish during their time here at Westmont,” continued Cook. “They are both highly competitive and personable so I anticipate that they will hit the ground running when they join us in the fall.”

Westmont Retains All-Sports Award, Places 19th in Learfield Cup

Submitted by: Ron Smith - June 13th, 2014

In a very close result, Westmont Athletics will hold on to the Golden State Athletic Conference All-Sports Award presented by Duke’s Restaurant in Huntington Beach. The Warriors averaged 6.83 points, edging out Concordia by 0.02 points in the final standings.

“The GSAC all-sports award is especially pleasing because it is our second in a row and for me establishes that we are a well-rounded and consistently solid athletic program,” said Westmont athletic director Dave Odell. “Our aim is to field competitive teams in every sport we’ve chosen to compete and this award demonstrates that we are doing this.

“I am especially pleased that with success on the field, we were also able to achieve strong results in the classroom,” noted Odell. “The fall semester GPA average for student-athletes was higher than any previous semester. Achieving within the academic rigors of Westmont, while being a full-time athlete, is quite a growing experience. I am quite proud of the way our student-athletes approach their business on and off the field.”

Texas-Brownsville Flexes Muscles in Warrior Loss

Submitted by: Ron Smith - December 4th, 2013

Fourteenth ranked Westmont Volleyball (22-10) found it tough going against the top-ranked team in the NAIA, falling to Texas-Brownsville (33-0) in straight sets (25-14, 25-21, 25-11). The match took place on the second day of Pool Play in the NAIA National Championship in Sioux City, Iowa.

“Texas-Brownsville is a very good team with a lot of heavy arms and a lot of height,” said Westmont head coach Patti Cook. “They definitely showed why they are the number one team in the nation. They have a lot of offensive power and we couldn’t stop them.

“We were hoping to get a little more offense going from our side, but (UTB) had a nice big block and some very powerful servers.”

Ciena Colburn, Madison Serrano and Marie Trudelle led the Warriors’ offense with seven kills apiece.

Westmont Volleyball lost the opening match of pool play at the NAIA National Championships in Sioux City, Iowa on Tuesday. The #14 Warriors (22-9) fell to #11 Columbia of Missouri (29-9) in four sets 25-17, 21-25, 25-19, 25-16.

“We played pretty well, but it came down to being outsized in a few key areas and making too many errors on our side (of the net),” said Westmont head coach Patti Cook. “We got stuck in a couple of rotations and had difficulty siding out, which we don’t normally do. A lot of that was due to Columbia being so strong in transition.”

Tied at 10 points each in the first set, the Cougars used a 9-0 run to take control of the opening frame. The Warriors rebounded in the second set, however. At 16-all, Sydney Striff delivered a kill to spark a 4-0 Westmont run that was capped by a kill from Madison Serrano. Columbia pulled within two (22-20) on a kill by Trinity Ojo, but the Warriors scored on three of the next four serves to knot the game at one set apiece. Setter Heidi Thompson scored the set-winner on a dump over the net.

Submitted by: Ron Smith - December 2nd, 2013

Westmont Women’s Volleyball (22-8), ranked as the number 14 team in the NAIA, begins three days of pool play in the NAIA National Championships on Tuesday in Sioux City, Iowa.

The Warriors will compete in Pool A, one of six pools, with #1 Texas Brownsville (31-0), #11 Columbia (Mo.) (28-9) and Briar Cliff (19-15). The top two teams from each pool will advance to the single elimination bracket. Westmont will begin pool play on Tuesday against Columbia.

“If we want to have a chance at moving on, we have to beat Columbia,” said Westmont head coach Patti Cook. “Columbia is a solid offensive team with some really good arms. They have a 6-3 senior middle blocker named Trinity Ojo who is very good. Their outsides are good as well.

In a closely contested battle with Menlo, #14 Westmont Volleyball has advance to the NAIA National Championship Final Site by defeating the Oaks 3-1 (25-23, 23-25, 25-23, 25-14). Junior outside hitter Madison Serrano tallied 21 kills for the Warriors while hitting .327 from the field.

“I was very impressed with the Menlo squad,” offered Westmont head coach Patti Cook. “I thought they were a well-coached team. We were physically more dominant, but they didn’t play like they were overmatched at all.”

“Our team played a good match as well,” continued Cook. “Tonight everything came together quite well. Every offensive player was aggressive and went after the Menlo block. Ciena (Colburn) made some key hits and blocks. Missy (Fuerst) did a fantastic block of stepping into the middle role and filling the shoes of Ciara (Turner).

“Outside hitters Madison (Serrano) and Jessica (McCann) did a good job of slowing down Menlo’s Courtney Calicdan. Jessica made some great saves on defense and put up a nice block. Madison had a good night, playing like a seasoned veteran. Her arm speed was incredible.
