The Panthers faced off against their stiffest competition of the season, taking on #2 state ranked Irvine Valley (#1 in SoCA) on their homecourt yesterday. The undefeated Lasers provided a "great experience and showed that we have the ability to play at the highest level," remarked Head Coach Brianna Gonzales-Harwell. It was the first loss of the season for the visiting Chaffey squad who came into the match also undefeated and ranked 20th in the state.
The first set against the Lasers was a close one with the Panthers falling by only two points. The team travels to Saddleback Friday for quad play.
