The Cal women's soccer team will hope to do better in the playoffs than it did in the voting for the Pac-10 honors, which were released yesterday.

Despite leading the conference in points (47) and goals (23), Bears forward Laura Schott was not named Pac-10 Player of the Year, a honor that went to UCLA forward Tracey Milburn. Milburn, a senior, was sixth in the Pac-10 in scoring with 29 points and fourth in the league with 12 goals.

Schott was named to the all-conference first team. Cal seniors Tami Pivnick and Natalie Stuhlmueller were selected to the conference's second team.

Schott had a spectacular regular season for the Bears, who will host the winner of the Santa Clara-Cal Poly matchup Saturday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The sophomore forward tied the Cal record for goals in a season, which was set by U.S. Olympian Joy Fawcett in 1987.

Seven Bears players received honorable mention honors: forward Kyla Sabo, midfielders Brittany Kirk, Kim Yokers and Ashley Valenzuela, defenders Ashley Mueller and Amy White and goalkeeper Maite Zabala.

VOLLEYBALL TROUNCED BY BRONCOS

The Cal volleyball team suffered one of its most brutal defeats of the season last night in Santa Clara.

The No. 16 Broncos swept the Bears, 3-0 (15-10, 15-1, 15-2) behind the performances of Amy Kohl (11 kills) and Ynez Carrasco (12 digs).

Cal (10-13, 5-10 in the Pac-10) had two players with a positive hitting percentage, Alicia Perry (.161, 8 kills, 7 digs) and Gabrielle Abernathy (.111, 11 kills, 2 digs).

The Bears host Stanford Friday.
