TURLOCK, Calif. --- Sophomore Jackie Coudert posted 13 kills to lead four Warriors in double-figured offense as Cal St. Stanislaus swept UC Davis in a California Collegiate Athletic Assocation women's volleyball season finale at Warrior Gym Saturday.

The Aggies end their season with an 8-23 overall mark and a 4-18 record in conference matches. The Warriors finish at 19-13 a program record and 13-9 in league play.

Senior Cassandra Prell ended her two-year career by leading UC Davis with nine kills and three blocked shots. Libero Mary McClelland collected 15 digs to pace the Aggie defense.

Cal St. Stanislaus' three seniors all enjoyed quality performances to end their respective careers. Opposite Mary Beacham had 10 kills and hit .474 to go with nine digs and three service aces. Two-sport star Amanda Oliver hit 10 kills en route to a .348 hitting average, and added two solo blocks in the middle. Setter Tara Hillis notched 41 assists to set a Warrior single-season record in that category.

UC Davis made its strong showing in the opening game, hitting .281 as a team. Kate Wilton had five of her six kills in that game as well. But the Aggies dropped to .045 and .000 in the final two games, respectively.

On the other hand, Stanislaus ran an efficient offense, posting hitting averages of .474 and .393 in the first two games.

Junior outside hitter Kelly Gaudino finished the season as the Aggies' top hitter with 376 kills and a .207 hitting average. McClelland's 361 digs are the most by any UC Davis player since Jill Changaris amassed 374 in 1995. Prell ended her senior year with 111 total blocks in 100 games played.
