Volleyball Handle Princeton With Ease

    Can you dig it? In the cozy confines of RIMAC Arena, the Triton men’s volleyball team rolled to victory over Princeton University Thursday night. UCSD came to play and hoped to pick up its first victory of the season. That is exactly what it did.

    Led by the inspired play of seniors Zach Hite and Donald Chen, the Tritons pounded their way to a three-game sweep over the Princeton plebeians. As a crowd of 181 eagerly cheered them on, UCSD locked up the three-game match with scores of 32-30, 30-23, and 30-26. It took extra points for the Tritons to seal the deal in the first set, but it was all blue and gold love from there on out.

    The dominating victory was a shot in the arm for UCSD, as it had struggled through its first four matches.

    The Tritons played their previous match against perennial volleyball powerhouse Long Beach State Wednesday night at the ugly-looking Pyramid in the LBC. While they played an impressive first set, battling hard before falling 30-27. The next two sets were not as close, at 30-23 and 30-19, but you could see the progress the team has made and could tell that a victory was right around the corner.

    The Tritons will use the Princeton victory to establish some momentum and pump them up for their next match, which will be a nonconference tilt with University of La Verne. The Tritons should use this opportunity to rack up some big points and let out some aggression.

    The Tritons will next be in action this Friday and Saturday night, when they will play a pair versus Brigham Young University out in the cold, dreary abyss that is Provo, Utah.
