League Round Two- A
This last weekend the gentlemen of UC Slam Diego-A participated in their second league tournament at Long Beach State University. However, a plethora of sickness descended on the Tritons as they entered the tournament four people short. The Tritons employed several different lineups and were gifted by the surprise visit of UC Slam Diego alumnus Jon Maroun. The Tritons won their first match against the sun devils of ASU but fell to Utah Valley in three. Winning their next match against U of A-B was a simple task but sadly for UCSD with the departure of Nic ‘glass ankle’ Maroun to go slam in his high school alumni game, the Tritons had to play with four middles on the court at one point with Tanner ‘the dream’ Hixson playing outside hitter and Rory ‘smash’ Rickey at opposite. The Tritons fell to U of A-A, but with a 2-2 finish considering having only seven people to end the tournament and the Tritons getting better every day in practice it’s looking like nothing but success moving forward!
