Montana Tech volleyball holds at No. 17 in NAIA poll

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Montana Tech volleyball team is holding steady at No. 17.

The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) announced the fifth Women’s Volleyball Coaches’ Top 25 Poll of the 2021 season today, and the Orediggers stayed put.

The Orediggers (17-8, 3-3) went 2-3 since the las poll was released two weeks ago. Tech went 2-2 at the Grand View Tournament in Des Moines, Iowa. All of the matches were against teams receiving votes or ranked in the NAIA Top 25. Last week, the Orediggers lost to Frontier Conference leading Providence in a five-set thriller in Great Falls.

No. 8 Providence moved up one spot in the recent poll. The Argos (19-2, 6-0) have not lost a match since falling to now-No. 8 Bellevue at the beginning of September.

Montana Tech hosts Carroll College tonight at 7 in the HPER Complex. Rocky Mountain comes to Butte on Saturday with the match starting at 6 p.m.
