California State University, Stanislaus' volleyball team had a tough weekend, dropping both Friday's match against San Francisco State and Saturday's match against Sonoma State in straight sets. After opening the CCAA season with a straight set victory against Humboldt State, the Warriors (4-8 overall, 1-3 CCAA) have lost their last three matches without a single set win.
California State University, Stanislaus' men's soccer team entered their match against Sonoma State with fresh legs on Sunday, a benefit afforded to them by Humboldt State's disciplinary season cancellation that gave the Warriors Friday off. As it turned out the rest wasn't much of an advantage, as the two CCAA teams battled it out at Rohnert Park and were forced to settle for a tie, 1-1.
Similar to last week's third match of a tournament, the Cal State Stanislaus volleyball team proved resilient in coming from behind to win a five-set thriller. This time the victim was Dominican on Saturday.

Last year the California State University, Stanislaus women's soccer team brought home the CCAA championship, finishing the season with an overall record of 11-4-6 and a conference record of 8-4-4. Although the Warriors enter this season without three of their most productive players from last year's team, an experienced field and a highly athletic freshmen class have head coach Gabriel Bolton thinking repeat.
Four years ago the men's soccer team at California State University, Stanislaus was less than stellar. In the program's 13 years of existence the Warriors had only won a total of 52 games, it was clear a change had to be made.
Last season's overall record of 10-16 was less than ideal for California State University, Stanislaus' volleyball team and their conference record of 6-16 was even more disappointing.
