Gaudino, Wilton Hammer Out A Volleyball Win

Nov. 1, 2002


Untitled Document CARSON, Calif. --- Kelly Gaudino posted 22 kills while teammate Kate Wilton added 13 kills and a match-high 11 digs to lead UC Davis to a 30-26, 30-25, 30-21 sweep over Cal St. Dominguez Hills in a California Collegiate Athletic Association women's volleyball match at the Torodome Friday evening.

The Aggies improve to 8-17 with the win, and 4-12 in conference action. The Toros drop to 2-22 overall and 1-15 in league play.

Gaudino, who had earned Molten CCAA Player of the Week honors the previous weekend, committed just six errors on 41 attempts to compile a .390 hitting average. She also had nine digs on floor defense. Senior middle blocker Cassandra Prell led UC Davis at the net, recording six blocks.

Michelle Clary was the only Toro in double-figured kills, knocking down 11 total and seven during the first game. Richelle Gingerich had a team-best 10 digs for the match.

The Aggies overcame an early deficit to take a 25-22 in Game 2, and strong blocking helped finish the frame and take a 2-0 advantage. UC Davis outslugged CSUDH by a 22-to-7 difference in kills during Game 3 to complete the sweep. The Aggies hit .268 in Game 1, .242 in Game 2 and .256 in Game 3.

The win also marked the return of Marritt Cafarchia, who had missed the four previous matches due to injury. She recorded 27 assists while fellow setter Mary Gaber set up 16 winners and hit 4-0-6 on offense.

The Aggies face Cal State L.A. Saturday to complete their two-match road trip.
