Leading in to the 2014 MCLA season we will be breaking down and grading the schedules for every conference and the teams in each division. Today we review the WCLL Division 1.

Sonoma State University : 2013 (13 – 5)/(6 – 0)

A | Solid 2014 lineup for a proven winner. They take a challenging trip to Arizona midseason, but all other tough competition out of the conference comes their way. We expect another exciting season from the boys from Sonoma State.

2/15 – UC Davis (Away)*
2/22 – UC Santa Barbara (Home)
3/1 – Santa Clara (Away)*
3/5 – Florida (Home)
3/7 – Chapman (Home)
3/9 – Oregon State (Home)
3/16 – San Diego (Away)
3/19 – Arizona State (Away)
3/21 – Arizona (Away)
3/29 – Chico State (Away)*
4/4 – Colorado (Home)
4/6 – Cal Poly (Home)*
4/12 – Stanford (Home)*
4/19 – California (Home)*

Stanford University : 2013 (14 – 4)/(4 – 2)

A+ | Smart players, smart schedule. If the guys can stay healthy and they’re coached to peak at the right time, we could see The Cardinal fly south this May!

2/8 – UC Santa Barbara (Away)
2/15 – Arizona State (Away)
2/16 – UCLA (Away)
2/22 – UC Davis (Home)*
3/1 – Chico State (Away)*
3/3 – Florida (Home)
3/8 – Santa Clara (Home)*
3/23 – Oregon State (Away)
3/25 – Oregon (Away)
4/5 – Colorado (Home)
4/12 – Sonoma State (Away)*
4/19 – Cal Poly (Home)*
4/26 – California (Away)*

University of California-Berkeley : 2013 (9 – 6)/(4 – 2)

A+ | Lining up mid-season games against the Colorado’s was a smart move. Cal kicks off 2014 with a well-balanced schedule. Let’s hope their roster holds up to make it all the way through!

2/8 – Chico State (Home)*
2/15 – Oregon State (Away)
2/16 – Washington (Away)
2/23 – UC Santa Barbara (Home)
2/28 – San Diego (Home)
3/2 – Cal Poly (Away)*
3/7 – Florida (Home)
3/15 – Colorado State (Away)
3/16 – Colorado (Away)
3/22 – UCLA (Home)
4/11 – Santa Clara (Away)*
4/13 – UC Davis (Home)*
4/19 – Sonoma State (Away)*
4/26 – Stanford (Home)*

Cal Poly : 2013 (7 – 8)/(4 – 2)

A- | Cal Poly’s first weekend of play will set the tempo for the rest of their season. If they can beat UGA at home and give SB a game, we’re likely to see them bounce back with a winning record in 2014!

2/15 – Georgia (Home)
2/16 – UC Santa Barbara (Away)
2/22 – UCLA (Away)
2/23 – Loyola Marymount (Home)
3/2 – California (Home)*
3/8 – Southern Methodist (Home)
3/9 – Virginia Tech (Home)
3/28 – Westminster (Away)
3/29 – BYU (Away)
4/5 – UC Davis (Away)*
4/6 – Sonoma State (Away)
4/11 – Chico State (Home)*
4/13 – Chapman (Home)
4/19 – Stanford (Away)*
4/26 – Santa Clara (Home)*

Chico State University : 2013 (3 – 8)/(1 – 5)

B | Looks like a tough draw for Chico State as they’ll kick off the season with 3 of 4 games in conference. Not much of a warmup for the games that really matter! If that’s not enough of a challenge, the Wildcats don’t have a single home game in April!

2/2 – Nevada-Reno (Away)
2/8 – California (Away)*
3/1 – Stanford (Home)*
3/8 – UC Davis (Home)*
3/9 – Southern Methodist (Home)
3/16 – UNLV (Away)
3/18 – Grand Canyon (Away)
3/21 – San Diego (Away)
3/22 – Loyola Marymount (Away)
3/29 – Sonoma State (Home)*
4/5 – Santa Clara (Away)*
4/6 – San Jose State (Away)
4/11 – Cal Poly (Away)*
4/12 – Chapman (Away)

Santa Clara University : 2013 (5 – 7)/(1 – 5)

C | Eleven games equals a pretty light schedule for the Broncos in white and red. That being said, victories over Noma, Cal, and Poly wouldn’t hurt.

2/8 – UC Santa Cruz (Away)
2/15 – Claremont (Away)
3/1 – Sonoma State (Home)*
3/8 – Stanford (Away)*
3/10 – Southern Methodist (Home)
3/27 – San Diego State (Away)
3/30 – San Diego (Away)
4/5 – Chico State (Home)*
4/11 – California (Home)*
4/19 – UC Davis (Away)*
4/26 – Cal Poly (Away)*

University of California-Davis : 2013 (5 – 9)/(1 – 5)

B | If the Aggies want to make noise this year, they’re going to have to finish out the season with a bang.

2/9 – Nevada-Reno (Home)
2/16 – Portland State (Home)
2/23 – Chico State (Home)*
3/2 – Stanford (Home)*
3/9 – Idaho (Home)
3/12 – New Hampshire (Home)
3/16 – Cal Poly (Away)*
3/25 – Biola (Away)
3/26 – Claremont (Away)
3/28 – San Diego (Away)
3/29 – San Diego State (Away)
4/6 – Sonoma State (Away)*
4/19 – California (Home)*
4/27 – Santa Clara (Away)*
