CLAREMONT, Calif. -- Playing a four-game schedule that included three teams in the national rankings, the young Tufts volleyball team lost all of its matches at the 2007 Pacific Coast Classic. On Saturday, the Jumbos were defeated 3-0 by Puget Sound, a team that received votes in the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) pre-season national poll, and also lost 3-0 to the University of La Verne, the #6 team in the AVCA poll.

Against the Puget Sound Loggers (5-3), Tufts lost by game scores of 31-29, 30-22 and 30-24. Leading Tufts with eight kills offensively were senior captain Katie Wysham (Spokane, WA) and first-year Dawson Joyce-Mendive (Minden, NV) with eight apiece. Junior Natalie Goldstein (Piedmont, CA) was stellar on defense with no receiving errors in 25 attempts and 22 digs.

La Verne (2-2) defeated the Jumbos 30-18, 30-16, 30-24. Tufts got six kills apiece from first-years Joyce-Mendive, Caitlin Updike (Manhattan Beach, CA) and Nancy Shrodes (Manhattan Beach, CA). Sophomore Dena Feiger (Long Grove, IL), playing a larger role in a new Tufts offense this season, finished with 10 assists and eight digs.

Tufts opens its home schedule on Tuesday night at Cousens Gym against Endicott College. Action starts at 7:00.
