WILDOMAR- After a stint as a college assistant coach at Azusa Pacific University former Calvary Murrieta head coach Paul Amoy was enjoying his retirement but also beginning to miss the game.

Amoy most notably led Calvary Murrieta to three straight CIF-SS volleyball championship matches and recorded back-to-back wins in 2007-2008 after falling in 2006. He then left Calvary Murrieta in 2011 and spent a number of years as an assistant at Linfield Christian and Rancho Christian before joining the staff at Azusa Pacific University from 2018-2021.

Cornerstone Christian, just two years removed from a CIF-SS division nine championship, posted a four-win season and was looking for a new coach when Athletic Director David Dexheimer reached out to gauge Amoy’s interest in guiding the program.

Those conversations turned into Amoy agreeing to return to the sidelines this fall and take over a Crusader program that recorded a 4-22 campaign overall with a 3-9 mark in Majestic League play last season.
