Coyotes retain top spot in nation

The Cal State San Bernardino volleyball team retained its first-place spot for the third straight week in the American Volleyball Coaches Association Division II rankings released Monday.

The Coyotes (11-0, 4-0) totaled 922 points, getting 34 of 36 first-place votes.

The squad, coached by Kim Cherniss, faces one of its most competitive weeks of the season. It will host No. 20 Cal Poly Pomona (7-2, 4-0) at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, then travel South on Friday to face old nemesis and No. 16 UC San Diego (9-2, 3-1). Saturday the Coyotes return home to host non-conference foe Cal Baptist (12-1) which is ranked No. 2 in the NAIA poll.

That is quite a stretch but the Coyotes should be up for the challenge.

Cal State won two matches over the weekend, both in 3-0 sweeps. Cherniss was able to use primarily her reserves in the second one and still cakewalked. But there will be no easy matches this week!
