KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Campbellsville (Ky.) claims the No. 1 rank in the second regular-season poll of the NAIA Men’s Volleyball Coaches’ Top 10 Poll.

Top 10 Highlights (historical information dates back to 2017):

  • No. 1 Campbellsville received its first No. 1 rank in school history.
  • There are no new teams in the Top 10 this week
  • Only four teams remained at the same rank as last time: No. 6 Park (Mo.), No. 7 Saint Xavier (Ill.), Aquinas (Mich.) and No. 10 Ottawa (Kan.)
  • No. 5 Menlo (Calif.) jumped into the Top 5 this week after a big win over NCAA DI Cal State Northridge. No. 5 is the highest rank that the Oaks have seen.
  • No. 3 Missouri Baptist moved up one spot and is currently on an eight-game win streak.
  • No team has been ranked at No. 1 for an entire season. Grand View has the most No. 1-rankings with 13. Missouri Baptist (6), Park (Mo.) (3), Benedictine Mesa (2) and Campbellsville (Ky.) (1) are the only other teams that have been ranked at No. 1.
  • Park holds the longest active streak in the polls with 28-consecutive rankings. Grand View, Lourdes (Ohio), Missouri Baptist and Ottawa (Kan.) follow with 27-consecutive rankings.

Poll Methodology

  • The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences, Association of Independent Institutions and Unaffiliated Groups.
  • The Top 10 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. A team receives 12 points for each first-place vote, 11 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 in the ballot are not considered “receiving votes”
