A week after going five sets in a win over UC Merced, host Menlo College made it a bit easier on itself by sweeping the Bobcats, 25-23, 25-16, 25-13, Wednesday in its home opener.

Maggie McDonald, a product of Notre Dame-Belmont and two local club teams, led the way with 14 points on 13 kills and a pair of block assists for the Oaks (5-1), who meet Great Falls on Friday at 1 p.m. on opening day of the Menlo Tournament.

Sierra Buscher also reached double figures in points with 11 on five kills, five aces and a pair of block assists. Monica Hruby added five aces, five digs and 24 assists for Menlo, which accumulated 14 aces for the match. Hannah Hudson had four aces and added eight digs. Moea Kekauoha had a team-best 15 digs.

The Oaks matched their best start in 13 years. Menlo opened 5-1 in the fall of 2004.
