With wins in three of its four matches at the St. Mary's Invitational last weekend, the Moccasin volleyball team moved up two places to #14 in this week's AVCA Division II Coaches Poll. FSC had been ranked 16th in the preseason poll.
The Moccasins posted wins over Central Oklahoma, St. Mary's (Texas) and Millersville (Pa.). Their loss was to Metro State, which won all four of its matches and joins the poll at #23 this week after being unranked in the preseason poll.
Two teams ranked ahead of the Moccasins will be among the teams playing in this weekend's FSC Classic Friday and Saturday at Jenkins Field House. Grand Valley State (3-1) is ranked #6 and Minnesota-Duluth (3-1) is ranked #11. The Moccasins play both of those teams on Saturday - Minnesota-Duluth at 11 a.m. and Grand Valley State at 6 p.m. Friday the Moccasins play Bemidji State of Minnesota (3-1) at 1 p.m. and Nebraska-Omaha (4-0) at 7 p.m. Nebraska-Omaha was among the teams receiving votes in the poll, but did not make the top 25.
Concordia-St. Paul is still ranked #1.Â Tampa is #9 and Nova Southeastern is #16.
