The Coyotes volleyball team earned the #14 seed in the North Coast Section playoffs and they traveled to San Francisco to take on the #3 seeded Bay School in historic Lettermen's Gym in the San Francisco Presidio.
Although the Coyotes lost in three sets (25-14, 25-11, 25-20), they played inspired volleyball and were competitive from start to finish. Many points were earned after long rallies with both teams showing their skill, athleticism and competitive spirit. In the end, the Breakers advanced but the Coyotes felt good about their performance on the night and it was an exciting finish to an outstanding season.
The Coyotes finished 16-5 overall and 12-4 in NCL II league play on the the season.
