3C2A Beach Volleyball Championships Information

Two Irvine Valley teams will compete in the 3C2A Pairs State Championships starting on Friday at West Valley College in Saratoga in Northern California.

IVC's standout pairs of sophomores Tessa Marocco and Kenzie Dews and sophomore Natalia Brandlin and freshman Audrey Fowler qualified for the event after solid finishes in the So. Cal. Regionals last weekend at El Camino.

Marocco and Dews took fifth overall in the regionals, while Brandlin and Fowler ended up 15th to move on.

Brandlin and Fowler won the Orange Empire Conference pairs title, defeating teammates Marocco and Dews in the final in three sets two weeks ago.

The pairs competition takes center stage Friday with pool play action. The tandem field will be whittled down by half by the end of the day, setting up single-elimination bracket play on Saturday to determine the state champions. 

Pairs action will be updated throughout the day Friday and Saturday as well. Friday's morning wave will be updated here while the afternoon wave can be followed here. Follow Saturday's bracket action here.

Grossmont's Madison Bogle and Alana Embry took the 2023 pairs championship with an epic 10-21, 21-18, 15-12 reverse-sweep win over Orange Coast's Corinne Williams and Brisa Zapata-Reeves. American River's top-seeded Kylie Matthews and Addison DeMarse captured the 2024 north regional title, while Santa Barbara's Olivia Medina and Ashley Rossi won the south regional and are the south's #1 seed.
