The Islanders played with intensity, but this wasn’t enough to put points on the board. Coach Adeile Ahmu felt that Mission Bay outplayed the Islanders. The Islanders also hurt their own cause with too many errors.

Islander Liz Hunsaker led the team with 12 kills. Sophomores Marlie Meoni and Zoe Johnstad  combined for 16 digs.  The Islanders current record is 11-7.

The Islanders next game is at Christian High School
