“We weren’t as efficient on offense as we should have been, but this was definitely a good win for us. Our strong defense and great serving powered us tonight Shana had an impressive night,” said Mendocino Head Coach Ori Polkinghorne said.

Shana Hiatt, a 5’9” freshman from Clear Lake High, dominated Alameda from the service line racking up ten aces on the night. Hiatt served 12 straight points in game two alone to break the game and the match wide open for the Eagles.
