Cal State San Bernardino volleyball teams gets No. 6 seed for West regional

Brenna McIntosh_Kaitlyn Christner

If the Cal State San Bernardino volleyball team is to make it to yet another NCAA Division II West Regional final, they’ll have to take a tougher road.

The Coyotes are making their 15th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance but they’re seeded sixth for the eight-team event which begins Thursday at Northwest Nazarene in Nampa, Idaho.

The Coyotes (20-6) will face third seed Western Washington (21-6) in the quarterfinal.

“(Western) is an excellent team; well coached and very good defensively,” Coyotes head coach Kim Cherniss said. “We have had some great battles against them in the past and this one should be no exception.”

The two teams met earlier in the season at the Hampton Inn-Wildcat Invitational in Ellensburg, Wash. The Coyotes and Vikings played to a five-set match with CSUSB winning 3-2 (26-28, 17-25, 25-19, 25-14, 15-11).

The Coyotes hit .309 for the match on the strength of 72 kills, 17 errors in 178 attacks. Senior All-American Tori May had 17 kills and fellow All-American Brenna McIntosh with 11 and Ashley Solis 10.

The Great Northwest Athletic Conference has four teams in the regional — top seed Northwest Nazarene, No. 2 Alaska-Anchorage, No. 3 Western Washington and No. 4 Central. Washington.

The Pac-West has two — No. 5 BYU Hawaii and No. 8 Dixie State and the CCAA with two — CSUSB and No. 7 Sonoma State.

NCAA West Regional
Northwest Nazarene host — Nampa, Idaho
November 20-22, 2014

(First-round times to be determined)
Thursday, Nov. 22
No. 3 Western Washington vs. No. 6 Coyotes
No. 2 Alaska-Anchorage vs. No. 7 Sonoma State
No. 4 Central Washington vs. No. 5 BYU-Hawaii
No. 1 Northwest Nazarene vs. No. 8 Dixie State

Cal Poly Pomona women’s soccer braces for playoffs

Stacey Atwater

The Cal Poly Pomona women’s soccer team has advanced to the NCAA postseason as the No. 3 seed in the West Region.

The Broncos will challenge Point Loma in first-round action at 7 p.m. at Cal State Los Angeles.

The winner of Thursday’s matchup will move on to face the second-seeded host team. The second-round matchup would take place at 2 p.m. Saturday at the same location.

This will mark the fourth all-time NCAA Tournament appearance for the CPP women’s soccer program. The most recent NCAA playoff game occurred in 2012. The event features a 48-team field and it’s a single-elimination tournament.

The Broncos (13-5-1) are directed by second-year head coach Mike Dibbini. CPP has notched 12 shutouts this season, just one shy of matching the school record.

The Broncos’ win total of 13 is also the highest for the program since 2001 and as of this week, CPP ranks eighth nationally at the Division II level for shutout percentage.

Last week, six CPP student-athletes earned All-Conference selections. Senior Alison Sauve received the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Defensive Player of the Year accolade and also was featured on the CCAA All-Tournament Team.

Thursday will represent the fifth all-time meeting between the Broncos and Sea Lions, a team that competes out of the Pac West Conference. So far in the series, CPP holds a 3-1 advantage. The most recent matchup came in the 2012 season opener, when the Broncos captured a 2-1 victory.
