LOS ANGELES -

Hi ya'll!

I'm Ellen Orchard and I am a senior middle hitter for the California Golden Bear volleyball team. We have a 17-5 record right now and are 7-4 in Pac-10 conference play. Last week, we went down to LA to play No. 6 USC and No. 7 UCLA and took both of them to five games. We beat UCLA 17-15 in the final game to get Cal's first ever victory at Pauley Pavilion so the trip definitely wrapped up on a very high note. We come home this week and take on Oregon State on Thursday (Nov. 1) and No. 19 Oregon on Friday (Nov. 2), both at 7 p.m. at Haas Pavilion.

I'm originally from Houston, Texas so all the traveling I get to do with the team let's me see and enjoy the west coast while I'm at school. I thought it would be neat to give all of our fans and family out there an inside look at the team while we were in Los Angeles last week so I brought my camera with me and here's what I got. Just click on the big link down here and you'll get to see my photo gallery. Enjoy!
