include the Oakland Golden Grizzlies who played in the Summit League

last season.

coaches picked Valparaiso as the favorite to finish first this year in the

annual preseason Horizon League coaches poll.

kills in the season ending stat comparison of all the teams, but

they did have the least amount of errors of all the teams.

With a 23 - 7 overall and 13 -1 conference record Cleveland State

found the right recipe, in focusing on reducing the amount of unforced

errors they committed in each match they played helped propel

them into a first place league finish.
