AVCA POLL (October 24, 2017)

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Stevenson University women's volleyball team moved up six spots and is now ranked No. 19 in the most recent American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Division III poll released Tuesday afternoon.  The Mustangs had been ranked No. 25 in each of the past two weeks.
