Cal Poly volleyball off to its best start in 32 years, moves up in latest AVCA Top 25 Poll

Posted: Updated:

After cracking the Top 25 for the first time since 2008 last week, the Cal Poly volleyball team moved up to No. 23 in the AVCA National Top 25 poll this week.

The Mustangs (17-2, 7-0) moved up a spot after beating UCSB on the road in four sets Saturday to remain unbeaten in conference play. Last week, they were ranked No. 24 in the AVCA Top 25. They are ranked ahead of Baylor and Northern Iowa, who are No. 24 and No. 25 in this week's poll.

Prior to this season, the last time they were ranked inside the top 25 was week six of the 2008 season when they were No. 22 in the country.

The Mustangs are also ranked No. 26 in the latest NCAA Women's Volleyball RPI rankings.

Cal Poly junior Adlee Van Winden (Napa, Calif./Vintage HS) notched Big West Women's Volleyball Player of the Week honors for the second time this season after an all-around solid performance against the Gauchos.
 
The outside hitter finished with 18 kills, seven digs and seven blocks to help the Mustangs defeat the Gauchos in four sets.
 
Van Winden hit .375 with just three errors in 40 attempts.  She also added an ace to her stat line.

This is now the fifth time this season that a Mustang player has been named Big West Women's Volleyball Player of the Week.

The Mustangs extended its winning streak to 12 straight in its lone match of the week.

The team is currently riding a 12-match winning streak and is off to its best start in 32 years. They will look to add to that this weekend as they will face CSUN Friday at 7 p.m. and Long Beach State Saturday at 4:30 p.m. Both matches are home at Mott Athletics Center.
