ANNVILLE, Pa. - After going a perfect 12-0 to claim the inaugural Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) title last season, the Stevenson men's volleyball team was the unanimous pick to repeat in 2019 after earning all seven first-place votes announced by the league on Thursday.
The Mustangs earned 49 points, six ahead of second place, Arcadia, and 14 more than third place, Messiah. Stevenson swept Arcadia in the conference championship game. The Mustangs dropped just two sets in all of conference play, including two postseason games.
