The Manson volleyball team fell short in their second matchup against Ocasta, falling 3-0 in a loser-out game that unfortunately eliminated the Trojans from tournament play.

The second set went to Ocasta, 25-9, and the third set ended in a Trojan loss, 25-15.

Manson could take some comfort in their cheering section, which was sizable and loud throughout the gameplay. Sophomore Marylein Bernardo won the Sportsmanship Award for the match.
