Loggers Stay Put In AVCA Rankings

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Puget Sound volleyball team remained at No. 10 in the latest American Volleyball Coaches Association's top-25 poll this week. The Loggers stayed in the top-10 despite going 2-1 last week.

While the Loggers stayed at No. 10, Pacific Lutheran climbed one spot to No. 17 in the top-25. The two rivals will square off tonight in Memorial Fieldhouse at 7 p.m.

The Loggers saw their four-match winning streak snapped in a five set loss to Willamette on Friday. However, the Loggers rebounded with wins over Linfield in then-No.17 Colorado College. While their national ranking stayed the same, the loss to Willamette dropped the Loggers into second in the NWC.

The Lutes remained perfect in conference last week, running their record to 6-0 and taking over first place by one game over the Loggers.

The Loggers enter tonight's match with a 4-2 record against ranked teams. They defeated the Lutes in four sets in the final match of their season-opening tournament.
