Cayori Williams had seven kills and six blocks, Paige Weaver hustled and was credited with 11 digs and earned three aces, and Rosie Orta recorded eight assists.

Jenna Buzek, the Sandies head coach, said the team started off slow in the opening match against Floresville, and she added there were a lot of communication errors that brought the team down.

In the Sandies in the second match, Buzek said her team played a lot better against Rockport.
