The Lasers, ranked No. 5 in the state, improved their record to 13-6 overall and 5-2 in conference.

Irvine Valley hit .405 on the night as a team.

Sophomore outside hitter Sean Carroll had 12 kills, freshman outside hitter Demetre Gossett added 10 kills and three aces and freshman middle blocker Tristan Belsby finished with nine kills and five block assists for IVC.

Freshman libero Red Ramos contributed seven digs and freshman setter Jimmy Wilson ran the offense with 39 assists.
