The undefeated CSM Bulldogs recorded their second straight playoff shutout, 41-0 over visiting Modesto JC, for the Northern California Football Conference football championship on Saturday, Nov. 30. At 12-0, the Bulldogs are riding their best record in their 98-year history. They face Riverside City College (also 12-0) in the California Community College Athletic Association title game Bakersfield College Memorial Stadium on Dec. 14 at 1:00 pm.

Through last season, CSM and West Valley had played in the same Coast Conference North. Because of a realignment prior to this year, West Valley moved to the Coast Conference South, meaning the Vikings and the Bulldogs have yet to play each other in 2019. That will change Tuesday night when CSM travels to Saratoga for a 7 p.m. start. “Everyone is excited,” CSM head coach Katie Goldhahn said. “West Valley has been on our side of the conference for the last three years (2016-18) … so I think our girls are super excited to see them.”

One of the best defenses in the state just keeps getting better. The College of San Mateo Bulldogs (11-0 overall) carried their undefeated record into the postseason Saturday at College Heights Stadium, shutting out Fresno City College 21-0 for their 11th straight win of the year.

For the first time in modern program history, the College of San Mateo Bulldogs have run the table. With football records from the California Community College Athletic Association website dating back to 1996, the Bulldogs (5-0 Bay 6, 10-0 overall) became the first CSM team since at least that year to go undefeated, finishing off a 10-0 record in regular-season play with a 45-31 victory over City College of San Francisco Saturday at George Rush Stadium.

The College of San Mateo women’s water polo team picked up its second win in Coast Conference play as the Bulldogs rolled over Laney-Oakland, 19-6. The Bulldogs took control of the match early, outscoring the Eagles 7-0 in the opening period. CSM added six more in the second quarter to take a 13-3 lead at halftime.

You’re probably going to experience some growing pains after a 36-year layoff. The College of San Mateo men’s basketball team got off to a tough start, dropping its first three games of 2019-20 at the City College of San Francisco Tournament. The Bulldogs still made a little history, though, as Friday’s game against Santa Rosa Junior College marked their first return to the court since 1983.

It took the College of San Mateo Bulldogs seven plays to put two touchdowns on the board — and this before their offense ever set foot on the field. The unbeaten Bulldogs (3-0 Bay 6, 8-0 overall) rallied to their eighth straight win of the year with a 28-7 victory Friday night at Diablo Valley College (0-3, 3-5) using two pick-6s within the game’s first two minutes to set the tone.

Victory No. 7 was a win like no other this season for the undefeated College of San Mateo Bulldogs. A 24-hourlong adventure that started with the game being relocated from the Bulldogs’ home field ended in an impromptu road trip to Oakland, and a 29-14 victory Saturday afternoon over Laney College. With CSM’s campus being entirely closed down Saturday and Sunday as a precaution in case electrical power was cut by Pacific Gas & Electric, the Bulldogs had to go into hurry-up mode to not only transport the team to Oakland on 24 hours notice, but to clear their locker room and facilities of all game-day equipment and uniforms as the campus was not accessible Saturday.

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.

Mike Marcial has been the head coach for the new men’s basketball program at College of San Mateo for a more than a year and still hasn’t won a game. On the other hand, he hasn’t lost a game, either. In fact, Marcial and the Bulldogs have not even played a game. Named coach in May of 2018 for a program that was coming off a 35-year hiatus, Marcial has spent the last year assembling a coaching staff and then hitting the recruiting trail to find players. All that work will finally come to fruition as the CSM men’s basketball team will open the 2019-20 season at the City College of San Francisco tournament the weekend of Nov. 1.
