STEPHENVILLE – After posting back-to-back wins to begin Lone Star Conference play including one against then-No. 17 Texas A&M-Commerce, Tarleton is back in the national top 20 by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.
This is the fourth week of national voting and Tarleton has been as high as No. 18 and as low as No. 24, while always remaining ranked this year. Tarleton is one of two Lone Star Conference schools in the top 25, joining Texas A&M-Commerce who fell from No. 17 to No. 23 after back-to-back losses against Angelo State and Tarleton last weekend. Tarleton has been ranked in every poll since the final ranking of the 2016 season, which is 19 consecutive weeks in the national spotlight.
Tarleton went 2-0 last weekend, earning victories over Texas Woman’s and Texas A&M-Commerce in Wisdom Gym. It was the beginning of LSC action for all three teams, who all began the weekend 6-2 on the season.
Tarleton will be back in Wisdom Gym Tuesday night at 7 p.m. for a crucial LSC showdown against rival, Angelo State, who is currently the top vote-receiving team not ranked by the AVCA. The TexAnns will hit the road this weekend for matches at West Texas A&M Friday and Eastern New Mexico Saturday.
