Right on the cusp of the California Community College volleyball rankings, College of San Mateo is in danger of falling out of the top 25 for the first time this season.
Friday night’s four-set loss at Cabrillo (6-0 Coast North, 14-5 overall) is a tough one indeed but was expected to be. Cabrillo entered the night in first place in the Coast Conference North, one game ahead of the second-place Lady Bulldogs (4-2, 13-7).
Riding a three-match winning streak entering Friday’s showdown, CSM continued rolling by taking the first set off Cabrillo. But after an equalizer in Game 2, the Bulldogs let a late Game 3 lead slip away en route to a 22-25, 25-16, 25-23, 25-15 loss.
