The Chargers (1-2, 0-1) lost despite 22 kills, six blocks and a pair of aces from sophomore middle hitter Caitlyn Godfrey. Sophomore outside hitter Mercedes Sazone added seven kills and two aces for Sandburg.
Freshman setter Lexa Mahr led the Chargers with 33 assists and sophomore libero Dani Lessard had a team-best 14 digs.
