Volleyball Team Now Ranked Second in AVCA Division III Top 25 Poll
Tuesday, September 18, 2012
The Calvin women’s volleyball team has moved up one spot in the latest AVCA Division III Top 25 poll. The Knights are ranked second in the AVCA Division III Top 25 poll released this afternoon. Calvin began the year ranked third in the preseason poll and has held that spot the last three weeks. A victory over previously second-ranked Wittenberg this past Saturday helped move Calvin up a spot in this week’s poll. Washington University of St. Louis remains the top-ranked team in the country. Calvin pushed Washington University to five sets last Friday night before falling 18-16 in the deciding fifth set. Wittenberg is ranked third while Hope is now ranked fourth, up three spots from a week ago. Calvin and Hope will face each other Friday night at 6:30 p.m. at Calvin’s Van Noord Arena in a meeting of nationally-ranked teams.
