GU women's volleyball remain ranked No. 7 in Mid-Atlantic regional rankings
LEXINGTON, KY. – The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) released their second regional rankings of the season and the Gallaudet University women’s volleyball team remained ranked seventh in the Mid-Atlantic region for NCAA Division III programs.
Eastern University of St. Davids, Pa., is still ranked No. 1 in the region. Stevenson University and Johns Hopkins University, to whom Gallaudet lost earlier this season, are ranked fourth and fifth, respectively. The Bison defeated eighth-ranked Messiah College 3-0 this year.
There are eight regions around the country, and the top eight teams from each region were ranked. Aside from the Mid-Atlantic, there are the Central, Great Lakes, Midwest, New England, New York, South, and West regions.
As the regular-season winds down and postseason play approaching, the rankings will have implications for seeding when NCAA tournament time rolls around.
The Bison are back in action this weekend in Scranton, Pa., for two key non-conference matches against Lebanon Valley College and University of Scranton.
