It was Irvine Valley's sixth win in a row. The Lasers improved their record to 11-3 overall and 9-1 in conference.

Sophomore outside hitter Cole Murray led the team with 16 kills. He also had six aces and six digs.

Sophomore outside hitter Josh Schmidt followed with 13 kills and freshman middle blocker Robert Ryley had nine kills.

Sophomore libero Billy Crow had a team best in digs with 16.  Freshman defensive specialist Cody Hermanson added six digs.

Freshman setter Jake Adams ran the offense with 48 assists.
