STEPHENVILLE – Tarleton Volleyball moved up one spot back to No. 10 in the American Volleyball Coaches Association after winning a pair of conference matches last week.

The Texans went 2-0 with a win over St. Edward’s and St. Mary’s last weekend. The Texans took down the Hilltoppers in four sets and swept the Rattlers to close out the week.

The Texans (7-3) are the highest ranked LSC team in the AVCA poll. Texas A&M-Commerce is the only other LSC team ranked, with the Lions coming in at 20th in the poll. Angelo State also received votes in the poll. Cal State-San Bernardino, who the Texans played on Sept. 7 when they were ranked No. 2, remains at No. 1 for the second straight week. Tarleton has been ranked in 33 straight polls dating back to the 2016 season.

In just ten matches so far this season, Tarleton has faced five ranked teams (2, 12, 14, 15, 19). Last season, the Texans only played three ranked matches in the regular season.

Tarleton will travel south this week to face Texas A&M-Kingsville on Friday, Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. and Texas A&M International on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 1 p.m.
