    Quotes: CAI assistant coach Wes Briscoe, “First, CAL played well tonight. They served aggressively and kept pressing. Juliann Parrish, their libero, was fantastic. It seems like she dug everything we hit. We started off strong with good movement and communication, but we didn’t take that past the first set. We couldn’t close out the third set even with a 20-13 lead and set point. On a positive note, Emily Haworth had a good match and Ezra Staggers again came off the bench and served well.”
