CHICAGO – An efficient effort to cap off a successful road trip was a perfect way for the Husky volleyball team to notch the 300th victory in coach Jim McLaughlin’s Washington career.

The sixth-ranked Huskies improved to 6-0 with a 25-15, 25-16, 25-14 win at Loyola Chicago on Sunday, hitting a season-best .408 and having six different players earn five or more kills.

The win pushed McLaughlin’s record in his 13th year at UW to 300-84, a winning percentage of .781.

“I love it here,” McLaughlin said of UW. “If you’re at a place long enough, things accumulate. It’s not about me, it’s about these kids that put on the uniform and commit to everything we ask of them. I don’t think it means much, other than I’m getting older.”

Junior All-American Krista Vansant followed up a great performance on Friday at Illinois (19 kills, 1 error, 39 attempts) with another stellar outing Sunday, as she led the team with seven kills, making no errors on 13 swings for a .538 attack percentage. She also set a career-high with six service aces, the most for a UW player since Gabbi Parker had six on Nov. 17 against Oregon State.

“We played well. I thought we hit the ball, passed and served the ball well,” said McLaughlin.


Jimmy Shane won the San Diego Bayfair, claiming the 2013 H1 Unlimited driver and team championship with the victory. He jumped six-time champion Steve David, who announced he is retiring after this season, in the standings. David finished fourth in San Diego.
