When the game finally ended and Loyola had pulled out a 2-1 victory on a goal off a header from senior Sean Traylor, the emotions came pouring out.

Loyola on Monday announced the bequest from Maedell Hoover Braud (Broh), who died earlier this year. Braud worked for Loyola from 1948 until 1980 as administrative assistant to the dean of Arts and Sciences. Her gift will establish the Murphy-Braud Scholarship Endowment Funds -- named for her late husband's family.
It's Saturday morning, and expect lots of Loyola students who live in Manhattan Beach to be out proudly wearing their Loyola gear after the Cubs knocked off Mira Costa before more than 2,000 fans in a rivalry volleyball match on Friday night at the John Wooden Center. J.P. Reilly, who happens to live in Manhattan Beach, had 15 kills for Loyola. Brady Wedbush contributed eight kills and three blocks. Luke Hardesty had 29 assists.
