The defending Mission Valley Athletic League champion Mission San Jose Warriors visited Moreau Catholic on March 29. The Warriors cruised to another easy 3-0 victory behind Zaki Sarwary's nine kills, Jeffrey Kanemitsu's 20 assists and Alvin Zhou's nine digs.
The Mariners were unable to put up much of a fight, losing the three games by a combined margin of 34. This dropped Moreau to 6-5 on the season and 0-2 in league play while the Warriors remained undefeated in league and are 8-3 overall.
