The Regals honored their lone senior, Carly Rose Howard, before the match, and then sent her off with a win in their regular season finale. The season continues for Howard and the Regals as CLU locked up the No. 3 spot in the SCIAC Postseason Tournament with a conference record of 11-5. Cal Lutheran will be at Chapman on Thursday for the semifinals of the tournament.

Jenna Jones kept her impressive stretch going as she dished out 16 assists, served five aces, added six digs and tallied two kills. 

The Regals hit .500 as they took the first set easily 25-13. With CLU up 11-10, the Regals scored nine straight points and cruised to the set one win. The Bulldogs kept the second and third sets close, but the Regals overpowered and took the next two sets with the same score 25-21 and claimed the match.
