Cheer on the Wildcats at their home, opening games:
Last season another historic run put the JWU women's volleyball team on the map. Coaches across the country think the Wildcats will be a force again this season, as they rank sixth in the preseason AVCA Coaches Poll. It's the first time JWU has started the year nationally ranked. The Wildcats earned 1,121 points to come in just behind Emory. Defending national champion Claremont-Mudd-Scripps received 42 first-place votes to take the top spot in the preseason poll.
