The UCSB women’s volleyball team will close out its 2010 regular season campaign on the road Saturday night at UC Riverside.

Santa Barbara (15-13 overall, 9-6 Big West) is currently fourth in the Big West after splitting its pair of home games last weekend against UC Davis and Pacific. The Gauchos will look to capture more than 15 wins for the 18th time in the last 20 seasons.
Riverside (2-28, 0-14) is still looking for its first conference win of the season. Earlier this year, the Gauchos swept the Highlanders 3-0 at home.
Saturday’s match will be the final match in the careers of three Gaucho seniors. Setter Dana Vargas, outside hitter Charlene DeHoog, and middle blocker Kasey Kipp will all be playing in their final match for UCSB.
“It will be a little weird,” Vargas said of donning the UCSB colors for the last time. “We are just going to go out there and play hard and try to end this season on a high note.”
