Playoff Update:

* Women’s volleyball playoff hopes faded as the team lost two straight matches to Cal Poly Pomona and CSU San Bernardino, but they were still granted a playoff spot based upon the strength of their record.

* After a jittery first half, women’s soccer settled down to prove it belonged in the upper echelon of teams in Division II by blanking Sonoma State 2-0 to advance to the second round of the NCAA championships.

* This week, men’s water polo prepares for the Western Water Polo Association championships in Honolulu on November 17-19, a must-win event for the Tritons to get into the NCAA tournament.
