Taking home yet another victory, the Rustlers beat San Diego Mesa with only three matches. The first match ended with a score of 25-18, the second match ended with a score of 25-15, and the third match (the closest match) ended in a score of 26-24. Their final score was a 3-0 match win.

After their March 29 match being cancelled against San Diego Miramar, the Rustlers faced Orange Coast College, in which they came across their first conference loss. Unfortunately, the team lost all three matches (25-12, 25-21, 25-23) with a final score of 3-0.
