Dordt Volleyball No. 18 In Weekly Poll

October 24, 2013

(Wednesday, October 23; Sioux Center, Iowa)  A Great Plains Athletic Conference loss to Hastings College on Saturday cost the Dordt College Defender volleyball team three spots in the Tachikara-NAIA Top 25 Coaches’ Poll conducted by 23 coaches across the country.  The Defenders are no. 18 in the poll after spending two weeks at no. 15.

The Defenders, 18-5 this season after a win over Briar Cliff on Tuesday night, split their matches last week, beating Morningside and losing 3-0 to Hastings.  The Defenders are now 9-3 in the GPAC and have four matches remaining.

Dordt garnered 304 votes in the balloting and is joined in the top-25 by fellow GPAC members Northwestern and Midland at no. 5 and no. 7 respectively.  Hastings is in the “others receiving votes” category of the poll.

Dordt will host Concordia on Saturday, October 26 for a Senior Day match and will then travel to Dakota Wesleyan on Tuesday and Doane on Saturday the following week.  Dordt’s final match will be against Northwestern on November 6.
