Auburn Ranked No. 69 In First NCAA Volleyball RPI
Oct. 15, 2009
AUBURN, Ala. - The first NCAA Division I Volleyball RPI of 2009 came out earlier this week, putting Auburn No. 69 in the nation. The Tigers are currently 11-7 overall and 3-4 in Southeastern Conference play.
"We are very excited to be moving into the top 70 in the nation and look to move past that into the top 60," Wade Benson, head volleyball coach, said. "It is apparent that things are moving in the right direction for Auburn volleyball.
"However, we still haven't reached our goals, one being to make the NCAA tournament. It is a goal that we are striving and training for on a day-to-day basis."
Auburn jumped 163 spots from last season when the team finished No. 232 in the country. The young squad is the fifth-highest ranked team in the SEC, currently behind No. 9 Florida, No. 11 LSU, 13th-ranked Kentucky and No. 20 Tennessee.
The Tigers host a pair of SEC matches this weekend at the Student Activities Center, beginning with a match against No. 9 Florida at 6 p.m. on Friday. The match will host the "Dig For The Cure" event, which is a part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Auburn closes out the weekend with a Sunday match-up against South Carolina at 2:30 p.m.
