Dalton posted a team-high 11 kills on a .500 hitting percentage in the second match of the trip against the Jejiang Junior Team.

In the first match, Dalton pounded down three kills on four swings to go with a block against Jejiang, but the Pac-12 All-Stars came up short, 3-0 (22-25, 18-25, 14-25).
