However, they came back in the second and third sets and won by 25-17 and 25-15, respectively. Unfortunately, in the fourth set, Santa Barbara was not going to let the guards down without putting a fight against Bakersfield and won with just one point, 25-24.

The last and final match was very frazzled. SBCC and BC were fighting back and forth every second. In the end, SBCC took the lead and would be tied at 14, but BC grabbed the last two points to take the game home with the score of 3-2.

Freshman Alexandra Johnson ended the night with another triple-double on the season totaling 11 aces, 19 kills, and 14 digs while teammate Aubree Dees had a season-high of 28 digs, according to BC Athletics website.
