Huskies Remain Ninth As AVCA Rankings Get A Shake
For the first time since 2007, there's a new No. 1-ranked team in women's volleyball. Stanford shook up the volleyball world this weekend by sweeping Penn State, the three-time defending NCAA Champions, in a tournament in Florida. That pushed the previously second-ranked Cardinal into the top spot, though puzzlingly Penn State still received two first place votes and Stanford the remaining 58.
The Huskies remain ninth in the poll after adding three more wins to their total last weekend in Athens, Georgia. Washington will meet Stanford for the first time this year on October 15 down in Palo Alto. Last season, Stanford beat UW, 3-2, in Palo Alto but the Huskies got revenge with a 3-0 sweep in Seattle. Whatever the rankings may say, it's bound to be an exciting match but there are a number of critical matches still between now and then.
