CHICAGO -- The University of Chicago volleyball team has been ranked 25th in the American Volleyball Coaches Association preseason poll for NCAA Division III.
Chicago is coming off a 30-13 finish and its first NCAA tournament berth a season ago. Five starters from that squad return this fall.
Chicago joined Emory University (#2), Washington (Mo.) University (#3), and New York University (#21) as one of four University Athletic Association teams represented in the poll. Defending national champion Calvin College held the top spot.
The Maroons open their 2011 campaign at the Elmhurst College Tournament Friday and Saturday, Sept. 2-3.
