HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - The Northern Kentucky University volleyball team has moved up to No. 3 nationally in this weeks NCAA Division II poll.
NKU, now 25-1 overall with 18 consecutive victories, jumped past West Texas A&M in this weeks rankings. West Texas A&M (30-1) was No. 3 last week, but the previously unbeaten Lady Buffaloes lost at home to Western State College in a major upset.
