Cassie Carino joined the Ohlone Volleyball program in 2016 as a setter and was an integral part of the programs upswing starting in 2017. In her career at Ohlone she appeared in 31 matches and amassed a stat line of 306 assists, 4.25 assists per set, 25 service aces, 107 digs, and 1.36 digs per set. "Cassie was a great teammate, and she did whatever was asked of her for the benefit of the team," said head coach Jeremy Penaflor. "You can never have too many of those athletes in your program!" Carino's career highlight was likely when she helped lead the team to back-to-back five set match wins at the Shasta Classic versus Shasta College and College of the Siskiyous. She tallied 21 and 22 assists respectively while also reaching career highs in "digs in a match" with 14 and 15 respectively. Carino most recently served as the student assistant for the 2018 team that qualified for the playoffs for the first time in over 20 years. Towards the end of her playing career at Ohlone Carino transitioned to a defensive specialist and serving specialist role, and she will continue in that capacity as she joins a senior heavy Menlo College program that looks to make another playoff run for the third consecutive year.
