Our collegiate beach tour brought us to the majestic lands of Del Mar Dog Beach where balls were volleyed, skin was burned, and most importantly, dogs were pet. A whopping 6 teams represented UCSD in the 2nd tournament of our beach season: Val/Bella, Sylvia/Ryley, Shaylee/Bryn, Sam/Vanessa, Diana/Becca, and Lexi/Paige. The Tritons faced off against teams from UCI, MSMU, and Utah Valley where each team showed their prowess on the sand. Most impressive were new members Shaylee, Bryn, and Sam who all balled out and showed incredible potential for future competitions. Lexi and Paige also showed amazing hustle, getting featured on the league's Instagram for their determination to never let a ball drop. Intense matches were played and in the end, Val and Bella emerged the lone victors, defending their title from the previous tournament. Diana and Becca also emerged victorious in the silver bracket, establishing UCSD as the premier beach volleyball team to beat west of the Mississippi.
