Coyotes remain third in national poll

The 8-0 Cal State San Bernardino Coyotes’ volleyball team remains in the third position in this week’s American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) top 25 poll.

The Coyotes are in the poll for the 156th straight time and inside the top 10 for their 71st straight appearance.

Coach Kim Cherniss will lead her team Wednesday night as it steps outside of CCAA play with a match at NCAA newcomer, but longtime foe Cal Baptist. The match is at 7 p.m. at CBU.

CSUSB completes the week with matches Friday (Chico State) and Saturday (Cal State Stanislaus) at home. Matches for both nights are also at 7 p.m.

Concordia St. Paul remains at the top this week and Tampa is second.

Cal State’s biggest CCAA rival, UC San Diego (8-0), is ranked 10th.
