Vanguard University Athletic Director Bob Wilson said the positives outnumber negatives when it comes to the reformation of the Golden State Athletic Conference, and increased conference championship opportunities for the Lions are foremost among the former. After the 2011-12 school year, Azusa Pacific, Fresno Pacific and Point Loma Nazarene left the conference to join the NCAA Division II ranks, just as former GSAC member Cal Baptist did one year earlier. The seven remaining GSAC schools - Vanguard, Biola, Concordia, Hope International, San Diego Christian, The Master's and Westmont - will be joined by incoming member Arizona Christian in an eight-team alliance beginning in 2012-13.

Concordia University women's volleyball coach Dan Fisher said a couple months ago he didn't expect to have it all "figured out" this season, the first at the school for himself and his coaching staff. Coming from the University of Hawaii where he was the associated head coach, Fisher, 35, knew he was coming to a good program with support from the administration and talent on the team, but he also knew it was a very young team. There are no seniors and only four juniors on the roster.
