By  | 

HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) – The Michigan Tech volleyball team is ranked No. 22 in this week's AVCA Top 25 poll, jumping two spots from last week. The Huskies are 16-4 overall, 8-1 in the GLIAC, and have won five straight matches.

The No. 22 ranking is the highest since the preseason poll in 1998 and highest regular-season ranking since 1996. Tech was No. 24 last week, No. 21 on September 9, and has received votes in every other poll this season.

Tech returns to GLIAC play this week after going undefeated at the Midwest Regional Crossover in Indianapolis last weekend. The Huskies travel to South Division opponents Parkside Friday and Purdue Northwest Saturday to wrap up the month. November opens with a match at Northern Michigan (Nov. 2).

Tech was ranked in five polls in 2018. The Black and Gold spent two weeks at No. 24 and three at No. 25 last season.
