After finishing fourth in the conference in 2013, and earning a berth into the NCAA Tournament, Central Washington University's volleyball team has been selected fourth in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference’s preseason coaches poll.
The Wildcats went 15-12 last fall, and 11-7 in GNAC play. Western Washington, Alaska Anchorage and Northwest Nazarene were voted first through third, respectively. Rounding out 5-10, in order, was Seattle Pacific, Western Oregon, Simon Fraser, Montana State University Billings, Saint Martin's and Alaska Fairbanks.
"The fourth-place prediction changes nothing for us," Central head coach Mario Andaya said in a CWU press release. "We are still focused on improving day by day, and if we can do that we will be in a great position to give ourselves the opportunity to be the best team we can be."
