Tigers Enter Top 25 for First Time in 2008
The Doane Tiger volleyball team used a win at Hastings College last week to aid their argument to be in the NAIA Top 25 and this week they move into the poll at No. 24. Doane had been receiving votes in the poll since the first ratings were released in early September.
The Tigers take a 21-7 record into battle as they host rival Nebraska Wesleyan tonight (Tuesday). Doane defeated the Prairie Wolves in five games on September 30 in Lincoln.
Northwestern College remains the top team in the GPAC after rallying on Saturday to get past Doane in five games. The Red Raiders are ranked No. 11. Morningside moves up one spot to No. 13 and Dordt held at No. 16 this week. Hastings drops out of the Top 25 after their loss to Doane and is currently sitting one point out of 25th in the NAIA.
