College Volleyball: Wisconsin Stays put at No. 6 in national poll

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

The No. 6 Wisconsin volleyball team has five wins through five matches so far on the season as they remain at No. 6 nationally in this week's AVCA poll.

The Badgers picked up three more wins over the weekend after winning the K-State Invitational in Manhattan, Kansas. Through five matches, Wisconsin has yet to lose a set in a match. The Badgers are (15-0) in match set play.

"I'm not surprised with the wins, but I think we have connected a little bit better than what you probably could reasonably think  with a new setter and a lot of new players." Said Wisconsin head coach Kelly Sheffield.

On top of this week's poll is Big Ten rival Minnesota. The Badgers will host the Gophers on October 4 at the UW Field House.

Next Up: Wisconsin will host Lipscomb Thursday night at 7p.m at the UW Field House.
