After recording three straight victories, North Greenville is now tied at No. 6 in this week’s Division II coaches poll released Wednesday morning.

The defending ConfCarolinas champions sit atop the conference standings with two matches left. The No. 1 seed in the ConfCarolinas tournament may come down to the final match of the season where the Crusaders face off with second-place Belmont Abbey.

Limestone and Erskine flipped spots, as the Saints are now the No. 8 team in the poll while the Flying Fleet are the No. 9 team.


Charleston was the unanimous No. 1 team, garnering all 11 first-place votes.

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 the more than 25 Division II teams determines the weekly rankings for the Division II National Coaches Poll.

The Division II National Coaches Poll will be released on the Off the Block website every Wednesday during the regular season.
