Under head coach Daniel Rasay the Menlo Lady Oaks Volleyball team is ready for league and is expected to fill some big shoes.
In a vote of the California Pacific Conference's six volleyball coaches, Menlo College, last year's conference regular season runner-up, was voted to be the top team in the conference.
The Oaks received five out of a possible six first place votes and thirty-five points out of a possible one hundred twenty six points for the first place finish. Simpson University came in second in the voting garnering twenty nine points and one first place vote. William Jessup University came in third with twenty one points.
For the first time since 2010, the California Pacific Conference will be conducting a playoff to decide who is going to be the conference's representative to the NAIA National Tournament.
The final results of the coaches' poll are as follows:
1. Menlo (35 pts., 5 first place votes)
2. Simpson (29 pts., 1 first place vote)
3. William Jessup (21 pts.)
T4. Embry-Riddle, UC Merced (17 pts.)
6. Pacific Union (7 pts.)
