FORT COLLINS, Colo.—From Nov. 2, 2009, to Oct. 10, 2011, a span of 26 weeks, the Colorado State women’s volleyball program was ranked in the AVCA Top 25 Coach’s Poll.
But after CSU (15-4, 8-1 MW), ranked No. 23 at the time, suffered its first loss of the conference season, at Wyoming on Oct. 8, the team fell out of the rankings for the first time in nearly two years.
CSU couldn’t be kept out for long, however, receiving 86 points in this week’s poll, released Monday, to earn the 25th spot.
The Rams began the season ranked No. 15, and peaked at No. 14 on Sept. 5, days after beating then-No. 5 Nebraska. CSU received 56 votes each of the past two weeks—good for 27th-most—before regaining its foothold in the top 25 this week.
Since dropping their match to Wyoming, and falling out of the rankings, the Rams haven’t lost a set, sweeping their last four opponents to expand their lead in the Mountain West standings. On Saturday, Nebraska beat undefeated and top-ranked Illinois in four sets to claim the No. 1 ranking. CSU remains the only loss of the season for Nebraska (17-1). Oklahoma, which beat CSU in August, is ranked 21st.
The Rams host San Diego State, who is in second place in the Mountain West standings, Thursday at 7 p.m. MT, and UNLV Saturday at 1 p.m. MT. Tickets can be purchased online, over the phone at 1-800/491-RAMS or at any King Soopers location.
