This past weekend at the Aztec Invitational at the SDSU, the UCSD women’s club volleyball had a chance to play some tough competition against an incredibly diverse set of teams comprising of CSUN as well as SDSU-A, SDSU-B, and let’s not forget SDSU-Alumni. UCSD won their first two games against SDSU-B and SDSU-Alumni on the first day, showcasing the amazing spiking ability of their defensive specialists and the wide range of hitting (or lack thereof) techniques of some of our players.
Day two, UCSD came ready to face off against SDSU-A after losing the gold bracket champions to them at the previous tournament. Though the competition was tough, UCSD was able to prove themselves by winning with a close margin in the third set. Perhaps after spending all of their energy to earn the last win, UCSD cut short their winning streak by losing in three to CSUN, a team that they had previously been able to beat. Though UCSD wasn’t able to go as far in the tournament as they had hoped, they played some good volleyball and are more prepared to win it all at the next one.
Unfortunately, the UCSD-Gold team also couldn't continue their stellar play from the previous tournament. They fell early in the tournament and could not win it all.
