Biola improved its record to 11-4 in their season and 4-1 in the Golden State Athletic Conference. The Eagles won against both The Master’s College and No. 7 Azusa Pacific University this week. The team has won five of their last six matches, with four of those victories on the road.

Against Master’s, senior setter Abbie Wright turned in yet another strong performance, contributing 20 assists and 11 digs during the match. Senior Amy Mosebar had nine kills, while Christine Douglas also made nine kills and a block. Senior Tavea Hampton added seven kills and three blocks during the Eagles’ 25-22, 25-18, 25-22 defeat of the Mustangs. Though Master’s gave the Eagles a tough game, Biola used two late runs in the first two sets, along with several big closing kills to sweep the Mustangs and continue their winning streak.

On Tuesday, No. 9 Biola traveled to the Felix Event Center to take on rival Azusa Pacific University. The Eagles, fueled by impressive performances by junior Kim Russell and freshman setter Gracee Gallarda, defeated the Cougars 25-23, 25-22, 23-25, 25-23. Russell recorded 14 kills, while Douglas and Hampton each added 12 kills. Gallarda made 30 assists and 18 digs in the match, recording a substantial double-double for the Eagles.

On Saturday, the Eagles take on No. 2 California Baptist University in a highly anticipated match in Chase Gymnasium. Play begins at 7:00 p.m.
