Also on the Aztec roster is former Rainbow Esteban Escobar, who has played in one match.

bullet About the Rainbows: Coach Mike Wilton intends to use these two matches as a chance to work on some lineup combinations and solidify the passing situation ... Junior Russell Lockwood (6-0 swing) may have won a starting spot as the team's passer after a stellar performance (19 digs) against BYU ...
