LEXINGTON, Ky. – For the first time in program history, the Southwest Minnesota State volleyball team has earned the No. 1 ranking in the American Volleyball Coaches’ Association (AVCA) Top 25 Coaches’ Poll.

After being ranked No. 2 for three consecutive weeks, the Mustangs claim the No. 1 ranking following match wins over Bemidji State and Minnesota, Crookston over the weekend.

The No. 1 ranking marks the first time in history an SMSU team has been ranked No. 1 in a Division II or NAIA national poll.

Tampa (729) is now ranked No. 2, while Washburn (716), Concordia-St. Paul (703) and Nebraska-Kearney (651) round out the top five. Previous No. 1 Nebraska-Kearney fell to the No. 5 ranking with losses this week to Wayne State and Truman. Other NSIC schools to be ranked in the AVCA Top 25 this week were: Minnesota Duluth (6th), Minnesota State (13th), and Wayne State (18th). Augustana is among teams receiving votes.

Southwest Minnesota State has now been ranked in the AVCA Top 25 for 87 consecutive weeks, dating back to Sept. 5, 2006.
