Victory for the Guardians Against the Pumas

The MAS Guardians volleyball team, coached by Frank Villanueva, won against the Pumas in a match that went to 5 games Saturday night.

The first game, with a final score of 25-22, contained a fine serve and pass by new Guardians player Walter Martinez and teamwork between Stephen Cieslak and Pio Afu as they blocked at the net.  In the second game, despite a loss of 21-25, Cieslak and Huong Dinh also achieved good blocking.
