Off the Block releases new Division II National Coaches Poll

Things just continue to get better for Lewis — a 10-match winning streak, first place in the MIVA and an unanimous No. 1 ranking for the seventh straight week.

The Flyers received every first-place vote to finish atop the latest Off the Block Division II National Coaches Poll that was released on Tuesday.

This weekly poll is the only Division II national rankings in college men’s volleyball.

Both NCAA Division I and NCAA Division II men’s volleyball programs compete for the same national championship. The AVCA National Coaches Poll ranks the top 15 Division I-II men’s volleyball teams and is released each Monday during the regular season.

A national voting committee comprised of coaches from about 15 Division II teams determines the weekly rankings for the Division II National Coaches Poll.
