SAN DIEGO — Led by eight blocks from Kjersti Strong, Saint Mary's (6-8, 0-2) played well at the net against the San Diego Toreros (5-6, 1-0), but it wasn't enough to slow down the USD offense, as they swept the Gaels (18-25, 17-25, 22-25). After a difficult road test to open up conference play, the Gaels will look to regroup in their return home to Moraga.

For the seventh time this season, the Gaels out-blocked their opponent, winning the battle at the net 11-8 today. Kjersti Strong was the biggest contributor to the blocking front for Saint Mary's, tallying a career-high eight block assists.
