Rocky volleyball finishes No. 10 in final NAIA poll
BILLINGS, Mont. – November 16, 2015 – The Rocky Mountain College volleyball team finished the regular season ranked tenth in the final NAIA Volleyball Coaches’ Top 25 Poll. The top 11 seeds and championship hosts Briar Cliff (Iowa) automatically advance to the national championship final site in Sioux City, Iowa, Dec. 1-5.
The 36-team event gets underway with twelve national championship opening round matches at campus locations on Nov. 21. The Battlin’ Bears (26-7), who were ranked 13th last week moved up in the national rankings by virtue of winning the Frontier Conference Tournament hosted by Carroll College this past Saturday.
The Battlin’ Bears defeated the University of Great Falls, 3-1, in the semifinals, then overwhelmed the Lewis-Clark State, 3-1, in the championship match.
No other Frontier Conference program qualified for this year’s national tournament.
