California then lost to state-ranked Cameron, 25-22, 21-25 and 11-25. The Lady Pintos then faced Boonville in the match for third place, which California won 12-25, 26-24 and 25-21.

Previously, the Lady Pintos traveled to Mexico Sept. 26, where the varsity captured a match win, 25-15 and 25-14. Taylor Walters led California with 11 service points. Kaitlyn Allison had eight digs and Abby Lueckenotte had eight assists. Sydney Deeken contributed seven kills and three blocks, and Holly Wolfrum chipped in with five kills.
