Volleyball Opens Season No. 22 in Preseason Poll
WARRENSBURG, Mo. (August 9, 2018) - Central Missouri Jennies Volleyball is ranked No. 22 to start the season. The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) released their preseason coaches poll, which the Jennies received 223 points in.
Central Missouri finished 2017 at 25-8, improving by two wins upon their 2016 total. They will return four starting players, plus the starting libero and nine total letterwinners. All five returning starters were named to the All-MIAA team last year, including senior libero Kylie Hohlen, who was also an AVCA All-American Honorable Mention.
The Jennies are one of three MIAA teams in the poll, joining Nebraska-Kearney, ranked eighth, and Central Oklahoma, ranked 16th. Missouri Western sits just outside the top-25, and is the first team in the "receiving votes" category. The central region is represented by 10 teams in the top-25 including the top three, Concordia-St. Paul, Southwest Minnesota State and Minnesota Duluth. Florida Southern and Western Washington complete the top-five.
UCM faces a tough test at the very start of the season. Four of their first six games are against teams in the preseason top-15. They'll take on No. 14 Arkansas Tech and No. 4 Florida Southern the first weekend at the Peggy Martin Challenge in Warrensburg. The next week they take on No. 15 West Florida and No. 6 Lewis. Lewis is also the only team other than Concordia-St. Paul to receive a first place vote.
Central Missouri hosts the Peggy Martin Challenge to start their season, August 23-25. Their first game is scheduled for Thursday, August 23 against Drury with a 6 p.m. first serve.
