The Cal State San Bernardino volleyball team had no trouble dispatching local rival Cal Poly Pomona 25-11, 25-21, 25-13. It was one of the more lopsided outcomes in what has been a competitive rivalry.
The Coyotes are young but the Broncos and young AND inexperienced, not a good combination.
The were more people shoe-horned into Darlene May Gym than I have ever seen. But it didn’t help the home team because the Coyotes silenced the crowd with their strong start.
Give the Broncos credit for one thing though. They got absolutely pummeled in the first game which can sometimes lead a young team to be even more overwhelmed. But they came back and were competitive in the second game, It was tied as late as 18-18 before the Coyotes pulled away.
The Coyotes are poised to make another national championship run. And the Broncos wil learn from the experience of playing a team of such high caliber.
Both teams will be playing at home on Friday night with the Coyotes taking on Humboldt State, another team they should have no trouble with. The Broncos will be hosting Sonoma State, another nationally ranked team.
