September 13, 1987|John Ortega

The Cal State Northridge women's volleyball team finished third in the UC Davis tournament Saturday, the highest finish of any Division II squad in the 32-team tournament.

Wisconsin defeated Northridge, 13-15, 15-10, 17-15, in the semifinal match after the Lady Matadors had advanced by defeating Hawaii-Hilo, 8-15, 15-13, 16-14.

"I was really pleased," Northridge Coach Walt Ker said. "We gained a tremendous amount of experience this weekend. We played some weaker teams and had no mental letdowns."

Northridge advanced to the quarterfinals by placing first in its seven-team pool. The Lady Matadors won 11 of 12 games Friday and Saturday leading to their quarterfinal match.
