Women's Volleyball ends season strong. 

The Santa Clara women’s volleyball team clearly didn’t want their season to end. Playing their final match of the year, the Broncos topped St. Mary’s 46–44 in a marathon third set—and established an NCAA record for most points scored in a set under current rules. After the 90th and final point, the immediate feeling for the Broncos was more relief than elation.
