Coyotes fall to No. 20 in AVCA poll

The Cal State San Bernardino volleyball team remains nationally ranked despite a 3-5 start but the Coyotes did fall from No. 11 to No. 20.

All five of the team’s losses are to nationally ranked foes and four of the losses came to teams in the top 13. The Coyotes also played the last four matches with All-American setter Camille Smith who is out with a hand injury.

The Coyotes have been ranked in the top 25 for 168 straight weeks, dating back to the 2000 season.
