Cal State to host D2 volleyball regional

It’s official! Cal State San Bernardino will host the NCAA Division II West Region tournament which begins on Thursday.

The Coyotes (25-2) will be making their 11th straight regional appearance and will get No. 8 seed Brigham Young-Hawaii (16-7) in Thursday’s quarterfinal. That’s a favorable matchup for Cal State with BYU out of a Pac West Conference that isn’tparticularly strong in volleyball.

Of course the top-seeded Coyotes are playing so well it probably won’t matter who they will be facing, They have won 12 straight matches and have an even more impressive streak of 43 wins on their home court.

If the Coyotes take care of business in their opener, they would face the winner of the quarterfinal featuring two CCAA teams – No. 5 Sonoma State and No. 4 UC San Diego. Cal State beat both those teams twice with scores of 3-0 each time.

The other bracket pits No. 3 Western Washington (19-3) against No. 6 Alaska-Anchorage (18-8) and No. 2 Seattle Pacific (24-2) against No. 7 Cal State Los Angeles (16-10).
