Mounties Volleyball Named Nation’s Top Team In Third-Straight Poll

La Grande, Ore – (Release from Eastern Oregon University) In the NAIA’s latest Women’s Volleyball Coaches’ Top 25 Poll Eastern Oregon University has held on to its No. 1 spot for the third-straight poll. The Mounties currently sit at 24-2 on the year and have won their last five matches. EOU will take on Oregon Tech on the road Friday, Oct. 28 in one of the team’s last four matches prior to postseason play. 

Poll Methodology

  • The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences and Unaffiliated Groups.
  • The Top 25 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. A team receives 30 points for each first-place vote, 29 for second place and so on through the list.
  • The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-rating is considered a low rating) is removed and the team’s ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for every ballot (including discounted ballots) that the teams appear on.
  • Teams that receive only one point on the ballot are not considered “receiving votes”
