25th Season of Women's Volleyball Opens this Weekend

Weekly Release (PDF)

Friday marks the beginning of the 25th season of Pac-10 women's volleyball as all 10 teams are in action. Seven Pac-10 teams enter the 2010 campaign ranked in the AVCA Preseason Poll, the most since 1995 and only the second time ever. The conference with the second-most teams ranked was the Big Ten, which had four teams in the top 25. Among the seven teams ranked, STANFORD (4), WASHINGTON (8) and USC (10) are in the top 10.

The Pac-10 is coming of one of its most successful seasons, sending a Conference record-tying eight teams to the NCAA Tournament, with California advancing the furthest, making a third-straight NCAA Regional Final appearance.

The Conference also welcomes back a wealth of talent in 2010, with eight AVCA All-Americans making a return to the court. The league is also very young, with half the rostered players being freshmen and sophomores, including 14 Volleyball Magazine Fab 50 recruits.
