PISMO BEACH, Calif.—For the second consecutive day, Cal Poly (16-24) defeated CSU Bakersfield (3-17) 5-0 at the Big West Beach Volleyball Tournament. With the victory, the Mustangs eliminated the Roadrunners from tournament play.

Emily Sonny and Hannah Hubbard defeated Carol Grasso and Sara Little 21-12, 21-15 at No. 1. Adlee Van Winden and Taylor Nelson swept Jocelyn Rodriguez and Madi Busler 21-18, 21-9 in the No. 2 match.

RaeAnn Greisen and Holland Boege handed Sarah Garrow and Ashley Prater a 21-12, 21-14 defeat at No. 3. Kayla Tinker and Ally Barber dropped a pair of sets (21-13, 21-11) to Savannah Niemen and Anna Gorman in the No. 4 match. Dora Beilin and Brayden Guenewald defeated Fabiana Andrade and Hannah Manzanares 21-8, 21-7 at No. 5 to complete the sweep.

“We played a little slower than we did yesterday,” said CSUB head coach Cesar Benatti. “We wanted to play at a faster pace to try and break their rhythm, but Cal Poly came out strong against us. The feeling is that we could have done a little better; however, looking at the big picture, we got better throughout the season and accomplished a great result which was being among the four best team in the Big West.”
