Coach Rivera stated "The ladies started off slow. They did not play their best game in the first two sets; however, I commend them for coming out in the 3rd set and fighting hard from start to finish. We lost the 3rd set by 2 points. I am not disappointed in my team. They played well and I believe if they would of come out strong like they did in the 3rd set in the 1st, there may have been a different outcome to this game. I can not express how proud I am of the girls and how much they have grown this season. It makes me excited to see what next season holds."

The Mustangs end season 19-4 overall and the runner-up in the NJCAA Region XIX women's volleyball.
