UCSB Club Team plays a friendly unofficial match. Pierce was honored to travel up to Santa Barbara to play UCSB and start off the 2015 season. There were no refs but there was a lot of battling going on.
Evan Bender, a Pierce Alumni is a member of the UCSB Club team and one of Pierce’s greatest examples of success. He set up the match and had the opportunity to show the new Brahmas why he was one of the best blocking middles in brahma history.
“Evan, put up a human wall today” said Pierce’s Coach Lance Walker. “But today was about something bigger than volleyball. I want these guys to see what hard work and grades will get you after Pierce. Evan never missed a practice or class in three years at Pierce. He is one of the most determined and goal oriented players I have every known. I am very proud of his accomplishments on and off the court and hope other Brahmas follow his example to achieve greatness.”
