“I thought we played very tough. These were some talented teams out here, I think we proved to ourselves that we can compete with anyone in the country,” said head coach Kathy Allen.

Friday evening highlighted the weekend for the Wildcats when they knocked off No. 14 Point Loma Nazarene on their own home court 3-0 (25-20, 25-21, 25-22). Pryor and Boss led the way again recording 12 kills and 25 assists respectively.
