Last night, I went to the opening round game of the Div. II Volleyball National Championship game between CSUSB and Alaska Anchorage. I was revved up to go as it was the first playoff game I have been to while a student here at CSUSB. And honestly, I love watching the volleyball team play because they seem to dominate every opponent they face.But this time, something was just a bit off. I do not know if it was just an off night for the Coyotes or they took the Sea Wolves lightly, but they did not perform as well as they are capable of. Still, they were able to get the job done defeating the Sea Wolves in four sets.
They move on to a game tonight vs. BYU-Hawaii. Hopefully, they will be able to move on to tomorrow’s West Regional Championship game.
They have enough talent to beat every single team in the tournament but they will need to step up because if they play like they did last night on a regular basis, it’s possible they will not reach the lofty expectations they have for themselves.
