AVCA -- Two Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) programs are ranked inside this week's American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Top 25 Poll. Ferris State (5-3) went 1-3 last week and fell nine spots to No. 13, while Northern Michigan improved to a perfect 8-0 after two weeks of action. NMU knocked off No. 1 Minnesota-Duluth over the weekend at home.
Michigan Tech (6-2) and Ashland (7-1) are also receiving votes this week but are outside the Top 25 rankings. Conference play opens this weekend before travel partner Tuesday makes three games in five days for GLIAC teams.
