The Lady Eagles fell behind early in the first set, but rallied to tie the score at 10-10, before dropping the opener 25-18.  A slow start in set two doomed MSJC as they fell behind and couldn't recover losing 25-14.  Sharper passing and strong offense from Alyssa Carillo, Taylor Kushner, and Jessica Santos led the Lady Eagles to a third set win 25-21.  The Griffons bounced back to take a very competitive fourth set 25-23 to take away the victory.

Kushner led the offensive effort for the Lady Eagles with 18 kills, followed by Carillo with 8 and Santos with 7.  Kassie Ray had 4 service aces for MSJC and Courtney Flowers had a team high 16 digs.  MSJC is now 8-3 and 0-1 in conference play.  The Lady Eagles return to action on Wednesday when they travel to San Diego City for a 5 pm match.


Kassie Ray had 4 aces Friday at #1 Grossmont, but it wasn't quite enough as the MSJC volleyball team lost on the road in 4 sets.
