LONG BEACH, Calif. -
LMU vs. LBSU 3-13-12
The LMU sand volleyball team dropped its second consecutive match on Tuesday, falling to Long Beach State by a count of 5-0 in front of 200 spectators. Caitlin Ledoux and Tara Roenicke led the 49ers with a convincing win in the top flight, as the 49ers didn't drop a set on the day.
Tuesday's format featured two matches playing at once, so flights 4 and 5 started the day. Alma Serna and Libby Fontanilla used their quickness and strong serving to defeat Ashley Maxfedt and Ellie Selleck 21-14, 21-14, while Tyler Jackson and Janisa Johnson rebounded from a slow start in the first set to defeat Jasmine Rankins 23-21, 21-11 in the 5th flight.
The best match of the day was the clinching match for the 49ers, as Chelsea Cabrajac and Haleigh Hampton faced Kenna Crouse and Taylor Scioscia. Close throughout, Long Beach State was down 20-18 in the first set, but rallied with four straight points to win 22-20. Crouse/Scoscia had another set point in the second set as well, but a block from Hampton gave the 49ers the win in an exciting 22-20, 23-20 win to clinch the match.
The 49ers' top team in Ledoux and Roenicke cruised to a 21-14, 21-13 win over Betsi Metter and Felicia Arriola, while Lauren Minkel and Delainey Aigner-Swesey completed the sweep with a 21-12, 21-16 win over Caitlin DeWitt and Litara Keil.
