Santa Margarita Slips Past Laguna
Breakers gave the Eagles a match victory in a 25-21, 21-25, 25-19, 23-25, 9-15 loss on Thursday, March 12, at Dugger Gym. Breakers dominated most of the match and led 19-15 in the fourth set before numerous unforced errors contributed to their downfall. Isaac Wulff tied the Laguna set-assist record in the rally scoring era (since 2004) with 61 assists and Tyler Alter also tied a school single match record with a .857 hitting percentage with 20 or more attempts collecting 18 kills on 21 tries with no errors.
