PROVO, Utah – No. 11 BYU women's volleyball travels to Santa Clara and San Francisco this week as the Cougars continue their chase for another West Coast Conference title.

BYU will play at Santa Clara (16-8, 6-5) on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 7 p.m. PT and again on Saturday, Nov. 9 at noon PT at San Francisco. Both matches will be shown on the WCC Network.

At 20-3 overall and 11-1 in conference, BYU is tied with San Diego atop the WCC standings with six matches left to play. The Cougars are 14-4 all-time against Santa Clara, including eight-straight victories. Against San Francisco, BYU is 19-0 all-time, including 8-0 on the road.

All-American senior libero Mary Lake is 11 digs away from becoming BYU’s all-time career leader in the category coming into this week. The U.S. Senior National Team member has 1,783 career digs, trailing only Ciara Parker’s 1,793 set from 2012-15.

All-American senior outside hitter McKenna Miller has been on a tear lately, hitting above .450 each of the last three matches, hitting .524 in that time. All-American sophomore middle blocker Heather Gneiting has also come on lately, hitting above .400 in nine of her last 10 matches, including .533 in her last three.
