Pilots Face Stiff Competition in Seattle

SEATTLE, Wash.--- After a long time off since their last competition, the Pilots beach volleyball team made their return to the sand at Alki Beach on Friday, and faced tough battles with Washington, No. 15 Hawai'i, and Oregon. The Huskies, the Rainbow Wahine, and the Ducks each prevailed over Portland by 5-0 scores on day one of the weekend tournament.

In the first match-up of the day against Washington, the Pilots 5s of Liz Reich and Krysten Bugarin won their first set by a 21-18 margin, before the Husky hosts of Callie Weber and Cassidy Schilling came back to force a third frame and eventually secure the overall win.
