LONG BEACH, Calif. - The Cal State Northridge sand volleyball team is still seeking its first win of its inaugural season as the Matadors (0-6) dropped four of five matches Thursday at fifth-ranked Long Beach State (2-3).
Head coach Jeff Stork switched his teams up a bit on Thursday as the No. 4 pair of Mahina Haina and Marissa Boyd came away with CSUN's lone victory, 21-18, 13-21, 15-12 over Jenelle Hudson and Alex Reid.
Sydney Gedryn and Kelcie Randazzo lost in the No. 1 match to Delainey Aigner-Swesey and Bojana Todorovic 21-12, 21-13. In the No. 2 match, Natalie Allen and Casey Hinger fell in a tight 21-17, 21-18 decision to Tyler Jackson and Janisa Johnson. Hinger had been victorious in two of her last three matches teammed up with Boyd.
In the No. 3 match, CSUN's Steffi Miller and Sam Kaul lost to Chelsea Cabrajac and Bre Mackie, 21-5, 21-13 and Alia Casino and Stephanie Serna dropped a 21-7, 22-20 decision to Ciana Wagner and Morea Wagner.
