We finally had several losses to jostle the order a bit in the AVCA Week 8 poll. This week’s top five features fellow unbeatens in No. 1 Juniata and No. 2 Wisconsin-Oshkosh followed by No. 3 Hope, No. 4 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps and Northwestern.
Other Region VIII and IX programs in the Week 8 top 25: No. 6 Wisconsin-Whitewater; No. 14 Mount St. Joseph; No. 16 Transylvania; No. 18 Gustavus Adolphus; No. 19 North Park; No. 20 Wisconsin-Stevens Point; No. 23 Cornell.
Region VIII/IX teams receiving votes this week: Millikin; Wisconsin-Platteville; Saint Benedict.
My Week 8 top 10 had Mount St. Joseph and Covenant instead of the AVCA’s Calvin and NYU.
