The quest for back-to-back state titles fell one match short for the Orange Coast College men’s volleyball team Saturday night as the Pirates fell to the L.A. Pierce College Brahma Bulls in four sets at the California Community College Athletic Association Men’s Volleyball State Championship hosted by Fullerton College.

Freshman outside hitter Kyle McCauley had 17 kills and sophomore opposite Wyatt Henson added 16, but it wasn’t enough as the No. 2-seeded Pirates dropped the match to the fourth-seeded Brahma Bulls, 25-22, 17-25, 31-29, 25-21.

McCauley and sophomore setter Colby Elder both earned all-tournament honors for the Pirates, who advanced to the state title match for the 16th time in school history and the seventh time in 12 seasons under head coach Travis Turner.
