    Volleyball Climbs in Rankings

    Cyclones Receive Highest-Ranking Ever at No. 11

    AMES, Iowa – Despite a loss to No. 9 Minnesota, the Iowa State volleyball team moved up a slot in the AVCA Coaches Poll, earning the highest ranking in school history at No. 11 in this week’s poll.

    Iowa State (5-1) wasn’t hurt by a 3-1 (25-27, 25-27, 28-26, 13-25) setback at Minnesota Saturday night. The Cyclones held large leads in the first and second sets against the Gophers, only to see them evaporate in each frame. ISU had wins over Northern Iowa, George Washington and Auburn last week.

    The Cyclones are off until Friday when they travel to the Hawkeye Challenge to face Iowa in a Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk series matchup at 7 p.m. ISU will face Drake and Northern Colorado Saturday before opening Big 12 play the following week.

    Re: Volleyball Climbs in Rankings

    Surprising. Thought for sure they'd drop a spot or two. Since we're not a "traditional power", I figured the coaches would look for any excuse to really bomb us. The ladies certainly are being shown some well deserved respect.

    Anyone else heading over Friday for the match against the hawks?

    (Translated - can I snag a ride over?)

    I am curious to see who is going to Iowa City since the party will be in Ames on Friday night.

    yeah - that'll hamper things for many, I'm sure.

    I'm heading to Dubuque for the weekend anyway, but my wife can't leave DSM until 7-8 Fri evening.

    Looking for a clean sweep by the Clone-spikers this weekend.

    A few of us were talking about it over the weekend - depends on if we can all get off early on Friday.

    I see that Iowa is really pointing for us - "Cram Carver" they call it:

    University of Iowa - Official Athletic Site

    Makes me want to go even more...

    Sounds like Iowa is 6-0? Should be a good matchup.

    God I hope not.

    (Look who they've played - I'd give UNI a 6-0 record without dropping a set. Of course UNI is a solid club)

    Hopefully our loss to Minnesota pays dividends as a "good loss" and not a confidence killer.

    Re: Volleyball Climbs in Rankings

    How do they set this up so that it's on the same day as the FB game but in the other town. Some good planning could put these matches in the limelight. I know that it goes to Drake everything third year but a schedule like the one below could potentially tap into the football crowd.

    year FB vb
    2010 Iowa Drake
    2011 ISU ISU
    2012 Iowa Iowa
    2013 ISU Drake
    2014 Iowa Iowa
    2015 ISU ISU

    The Iowa game was the day before the ISU/Iowa game but in Ames last year.
