Irvine Valley's women's beach volleyball team battled two more NCAA Division 1 schools on Monday afternoon.

Three days after hosting four-year programs Long Beach State, Concordia and Nebraska, the Lasers took on Oregon and Cal Poly.

The Lasers played right with Oregon before falling, 3-2. Cal Poly, ranked No. 6 in the nation, had too much for IVC in a 5-0 victory.

Against Oregon, Irvine Valley picked up wins from its No. 2 pair team of sophomore Olivia Aguilar and freshman Renata Bath. The duo defeated Taylor Agost and Josie Cole, 21-16, 21-11.

And Irvine Valley's No. 3 pair of sophomore Hannah Salaya and freshman Emilie Austin defeated Lauren Page and Willow Johnson, 21-18, 21-17.

The Lasers were close at the top spot with their team of sophomore Taira Ka'awaloa and freshman Megan Ramseyer just falling, 21-19, 21-18.

Against a tough Cal Poly squad, Ka'awaloa and Ramseyer had the closest match, losing, 21-12, 21-15, to Cal Poly's Torrey Van Winden and Tia Miril.

Irvine Valley's record went to 3-8 overall with seven of its losses coming to four-year schools.

Irvine Valley is back in action against community college rivals on Friday, Apr. 6. IVC will travel to Riverside for a four-way conference event against host Riverside, Fullerton and Saddleback.
