Missouri volleyball ranked No. 15 in preseason poll

Monday, August 11, 2014 | 8:10 p.m. CDT

The Missouri volleyball team has been ranked No. 15 in the American Volleyball Coaches Association Preseason Top-25 Poll, according to the Missouri Athletic Department.

This is the highest preseason rank for Mizzou since 2006.

The Tigers are coming off a 35-1 season in which they won the Southeastern Conference Championship.

“While it is great to be ranked at this point of the season, it is just a preseason poll and we recognize the amount of work that needs to be put in order to back up that ranking,” head coach Wayne Kreklow said.

“To have our name up there with some of the names on this list says a lot about what our team has achieved over the past several seasons. We have a lot of talent on this year’s team and I know they are ready to get out there and start competing.”

Missouri is one of three SEC teams ranked in the Preseason Top-25, trailing only No. 10 Florida. The preseason rank means that Missouri has now been ranked in the last 10 consecutive Top-25 polls for the association, dating back to Oct. 7 of last season.

The Tigers will open the 2014 season with the annual Black & Gold Scrimmage at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 20.
