Pacific Opens 2019 Season Against Saint Mary's and San Jose State

STOCKTON, Calif. – The Pacific beach volleyball team will open its 2019 campaign with two home games this week against Saint Mary's and San Jose State. 

The Tigers will host the Gaels on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. and will wrap up its home stand on Saturday when it takes on the Spartans at 11:00 a.m.

There will be nearly all new faces in the sand this year for Pacific after graduating seniors — Katrin Gotterba and Taylor Poncetta. The Tigers only returners will be senior Alex Holt and sophomore Hanne De Schrijver.

Among the newcomers to the beach season are indoor volleyball players — Gabby Leo, Allison Dennemann, Jadyn Tubbs, Lucy Carpenter, and Riley Patterson. Also joining this year's squad are Kennedy Kaminsky, Alyna Abeleda-Mostajo, Sabrina Ballin, Sarah Bethea, Mahlia Grace Williams, Lena Saucedo, and Katherine Nguyen.
