USC had its season-long 11-match winning streak snapped in today’s loss at Arizona. It was the Trojans’ longest winning streak since they opened 2012 with 13 consecutive victories.
The Women of Troy fell to 86-8 (.915) in all-time matches as the No. 1-ranked team.
USC dropped to 58-19 in its all-time series with Arizona, and had a seven-match winning streak over the Wildcats snapped.
Sophomore OH Samantha Bricio’s service ace helped her tie Julie Mariani (1999) in fifth place for single-season aces at USC. She needs three more to tie Janice Johnson (1982) in fourth place and needs four more to crack the Trojans’ all-time career top ten and would tie Christine Brigman (97, 1987-89). She currently has 93 career service aces.
Senior libero Natalie Hagglundmoved in front of UCLA’s Lainey Gera (2008-11) into eighth place in Pac-12 history for career digs. She now has 2,017. Hagglund is also within 54 digs of Debora Seilhamer’s school-record 2,071 digs (2003-06).
