On a beautiful Friday in Carlsbad, California, the MiraCosta College women's beach volleyball team won a pair of matches against four-year universities. In the first match the Spartans won by a final score of 3-2 against Concordia University. The victory versus Concordia was especially notable because the Eagles were one of two teams to beat MiraCosta during last year's historical season that ended in a state championship for the Spartans.
After the big win against Concordia, MiraCosta went on to soundly beat Hope International University with a 5-0 sweep.
The Spartans will next be in action on Saturday March 10th at CSU Baskersfield.
