Loyola Maintains No. 10 Ranking In AVCA Division I-II Poll
April 3, 2017

CHICAGO - The Loyola University Chicago men’s volleyball team is ranked No. 10 in the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Division I-II Poll for the fifth consecutive week, according to the latest rankings released this afternoon. This marks the 73rd straight week that the Ramblers have been ranked in the AVCA poll. Loyola is one of five Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (MIVA) teams in this week’s poll, joining No. 2 Ohio State, No. 7 Lewis, No. 13 Ball State and No. 15 Grand Canyon.

Loyola went 1-2 last week, suffering a heartbreaking five-set loss at No. 7 Lewis on March 28 before falling to Grand Canyon on April 1 to snap the Ramblers’ 42-match home win streak versus unranked teams. However, on Senior Night on April 1, the Ramblers bounced back with one of their best performances of the season to earn a three-set sweep of Grand Canyon.

The Ramblers have a pivotal final week of the 2017 regular season upcoming, with road matches versus Fort Wayne (April 6) and No. 13 Ball State (April 8) looming.
