The Mariners fell in straight sets as Lane kept the Mariners from developing any sort of attack throughout the match. Marin hit negative at -.141 for the entire match with just 10 kills and 20 errors on 71 total attacks.
Lane swept through Marin 25-9, 25-6 and 25-10, but despite the lopsided score line, there were some solid performances.

Sarah Harris had an excellent all-around game with a team high nine assists and team high seven digs on the day. Magnolia Johnson did all she could from her libero position with an assist, an ace, and five digs.
Lisa Gera on the match "Lane Community College was a very competitive team with multiple offensive weapons and tough serving. They won the serve and pass battle making it tough for us to find a rhythm. We continue to see consistent offensive and defensive contributions from Salomi Galodamu. She brings such a positive impact and has great chemistry with our setter, Sarah Harris."
The Mariners have a few days of rest and recuperation before hosting the San Jose City College Jaguars on Wednesday, September 5th at 6pm.
