The Cal State San Bernardino volleyball team moved up two spots to No. 17 in the American Volleyball Coaches Association poll released Monday.
The Coyotes (21-3, 14-2), coming off a 3-1 win over Cal Poly Pomona on Saturday, are one game behind Sonoma State in the CCAA. They play the last four matches of the season on the road, the first of those at Chico State Friday.

The Cal State San Bernardino volleyball team split matches over the weekend, losing to Sonoma State, the team that snapped their streak of eight straight CCAA titles last year, but coming back for a win over Humboldt State.
That loss cost the Coyotes (12-3, 5-2) three places in the American Volleyball Coaches poll released Monday. Cal State dropped from No. 20 to No. 23.
The Coyotes will play three matches at home this week beginning with a Tuesday match at Coussoulis Arena against Cal State Monterey Bay.

The Cal State San Bernardino volleyball program has produced a half dozen All-Americans at the middle blocker position. So being the school’s career leader in any category is quite the accomplishment.
Senior Brenna McIntosh put herself there over the weekend in the Coyotes 3-1 win over Cal State San Marcos.
McIntosh had already broken the school record in solo blocks the first weekend of the season but her latest comes in the category of total blocks. She managed four in that match to giver her 500, two more than former All-American Kim Morohunfola.
“It’s exciting,” she said. “When I came here as a freshman I would have never thought I’d be able to do something like that. It comes with having a good coaching staff and good team around me.”
McIntosh now owns career records in solo blocks (99) and total blocks (500). She needs five block assists to own that record as well, held by Morohunfola (405, 2000-03).
McIntosh said she was aware of the impending record. Sports Information Director Mark Reinhiller had written about it earlier and her grandmother had been keeping track.
“I knew I was close but when you’re out there playing it isn’t something you think about,” she said. “You’re just playing.”
