Women’s volleyball stuns first-place Cal Poly

Whenever Queen's "We Are the Champions" is heard at home after a win, fans know it was a big one.

When the last bulb on the scoreboard was lit, the Aggie faithful had seen just that: a four-set victory over the first-place Cal Poly Mustangs.

"I told the girls before the match that we had nothing to lose," head coach Jamie Holmes said. "We're playing the top team in the conference and we need to take a lot of risks - and I think we did exactly that."

The win moves UC Davis to 11-13 overall and 3-8 in Big West Conference play, while the Mustangs fall to 13-9, 8-3. It was the second of two games this weekend for Aggies, who lost to UC Santa Barbara (10-12, 6-5) on Friday.
