COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Columbus State Community College volleyball team rose to No. 2 in the nation in the latest National Junior College (NJCAA) poll released Tuesday.
The second ranked Cougars move up one spot after being positioned third since the Sep. 5 poll was released. Columbus State has been ranked in the NJCAA top-ten since the 2017 pre-season poll was released. The ranking represents the highest DIII ranking in program history since they were tabbed number two in 2004.
The top three schools, Central Lakes (Brainerd, MN), Columbus State, and conference rival Owens (Perrysburg, OH) have been holding onto those respective spots nearly all season. The shift up in the rankings comes after Columbus State came home with four road victories this past week, including defeating No. 7 Rock Valley College.
The Cougars currently stand at 22-2 overall and 11-1 in conference play, having dropped one league match to top-ranked Owens earlier this season.
Next up, the team will travel to Dayton to face off with Sinclair on Wed, Oct. 10 at 6:00 p.m.
