The Matadors have worked on hitting consistently and siding out all season long, so it’s no surprise that when they failed to do so in their last three matches, it easily turned into a three-game losing streak. Head coach Jeff Campbell has watched CSUN (8-13, 4-10 MPSF) hit below .300 in its last three home ...

CSUN had a rough stretch of three matches in four nights, but three days of rest should prove helpful heading into a tough home test against No. 2 UC Irvine tonight. These two have met once before this season in conference play, resulting in an Anteaters’ straight-set win over Northridge in Ir...

The Matadors couldn’t continue their solid play after having a great hitting percentage the day before in their game against Loyola (Ill.) as CSUN (8-11) fell in four sets (25-17, 25-20, 22-25, 25-22) to Harvard (12-2) Saturday night at the Matadome. “In general, we took it too easy,” Matador oppo...

Three consecutive CSUN mistakes in the third set of Wednesday night’s match-up between the Matadors and Ball State were threatening to make the night longer than it needed to be. Ahead 2-0, CSUN had allowed the Cardinals to draw within 17-16, the closest it had been in the latter instances of any of the frames. “Errors happen. It ...

The Matadors played tough against No. 1 UCLA early, but the Bruins' (17-2, 11-1 MPSF) offense proved too much to handle for CSUN as it fell in straight sets at the Matadome. Northridge’s (6-10, 4-8) offense hit extremely well in the first set but couldn’t keep the pace in the following sets...

There was no time to dive for it, so Stork digged it up with a kick. “If I had to give a gameball tonight,...
