What's going on in the world of WAC Volleyball?!
Yes.. yes.. I know we're only a couple weeks into the season and WAC play is still about a week and a half off but here are the current standings:

The Cougars started off the season winning one of three in the Leatherneck Invitational, but since then they have been on a roll. They've won at Bradley, just swept the EIU Panther Classic (beating in-state schools WIU and EIU), and will have the chance to knock off NIU (0-11) on the road tonight. They're off to their best start in Division I history (keep in mind that the most wins in a season since turning D1 in 1988 is 12).

If you remember, Chicago State was given no confidence at all in the preseason vote as they were voted to finish last in the conference by all other WAC members. Hopefully they'll be able to continue this early success into conference play. It would be nice for the Cougars to experience the taste of winning in at least one sport.

GCU had been off to a hot start as well before losing all three matches in the GCU Tournament. UTRGV (picked to finish 2nd) has played some major programs so their W/L is a little skewered, but NMSU is off to a solid start.

Women's volleyball is by far not my most knowledgeable sport so I'm sure others can contribute to this better than I can; however, I had to share my excitement about the Cougars early success!

Thanks Pojoaque and Ben! SU was expected to be fifth in conference so I'm sure they'll be a tough out on conf play! Unfortunately, I must have had wishful thinking in CSU playing NIU because the match is actually against UIC. UIC is a lot better than NIU, and currently up 2-0 on the Cougars. Not looking good today.

Chicago State back on top, congratulations.

UTRGV is finally climbing back a bit but we really need to take out NMSU this weekend.
