Lower alcohol use at CSUS

their counterparts nationwide and are considerably less likely to engage
in high-risk drinking, according to an ongoing, nationwide study of

Capital Region's growing traffic congestion and for offering suggestions
for improving traffic flow on local freeways. The site was created by the
Sacramento Institute of Traffic Safety, which is associated with CSUS.

Fall sports preview
volleyball hopes to find its way back to the NCAA tournament, while
football is expecting another great showing from the team's sophomore
quarterback. Men's soccer wants to repeat last year's regular-season
success. The cross country squads, meanwhile, see a promising year with
the return of 23 runners. And the women's soccer team begins a new era
under just its second head coach ever.
It's all part of the fall sports season at CSUS.
The CSUS volleyball team swept both Birmingham-Southern (30-23, 30-16,
30-15) and host Sam Houston State (30-17, 30-17, 30-19), and senior Jayme
Wright was named tournament MVP, at the Sam Houston State Invitational at
Johnson Coliseum. The Hornets finished the tournament with a 3-1 record
and placed second at the five-team tourney.
