After finishing the Husky Invitational in second place Saturday afternoon, the Washington beach volleyball team returned to action Sunday at Alki Beach Park for the third day in a row.
The Huskies (4-9, 0-5 Pac-12) were looking to end the weekend on a high note with their final two matches of the regular season.
Unfortunately, Washington was not able to capitalize against No. 9 Arizona, 1-4. Shayne McPherson and Chloe Loreen were the lone Huskies to defeat their opponents, shutting out the Wildcats’ Parkhurst and Rennie in a 21-17, 21-8 match.
The Huskies met No. 15 Hawaii later in the day for the third and final time this weekend, losing in a tight 3-2 match. McPherson and Loreen took care of business at the one spot with a 21-18, 21-16 win against Napoleon and Santer of Hawai’i, and Scarlett Dahl and Kyra Petersen finished the day with a 21-19, 21-16 victory over Huddleston/Glagau in their match.
As regular season play concludes, day one of the Pac-12 Championships is set to take place next Thursday, April 29 at Mapes Beach in Los Angeles.
