KOB Eyewitness Sports 4 has learned Cibola volleyball coach Sang-Yong Yun has been suspended for two matches for a violation of NMAA rules.  Sources close to the program tell us Yun held scrimages that were prohibited.

Yun is in his fourth year in charge of the Cibola program.  Last October, he was ejected from a match with Rio Rancho after protesting a call to the officials.

According to an article in the Rio Rancho Observer, Gary Herron wrote, "After being asked to exit the gym, Yun sized up a door at one end of the gym — at the other end of the gym is printed, “Cibola High School, Where good sportsmanship always counts” — and leaped high to kick it.

The door didn’t budge and Yun wound up on his back on the floor, arguably the funniest moment of the evening."

Yun missed Saturday's match against Centennial.  Cibola's athletic director Ray Rodriguez told us Yun would return following their match with West Mesa.  Cibola's only loss this year was to Sandia in the Metro Championship final.
